My condolences to the Groth Family. I was in Penny's 2nd grade class at Weston in Elkhart when she went from Penny Garl to Penny Groth. I vividly recall her excitement in marrying Larry.

I just want to express my condolences to the family of Mr Larry Groth. I was a former student of Mr Groth at James Madison School back in the mid 70's. He taught me algebra and trigonometry in his math class. He was also my track coach.  He would run with us getting us ready for the track meets. Recently, I had the honor of being his former USPS mail carrier when he lived on east side of South Bend.  Thank you Mr Groth for your dedication as a teacher. My best to the Groth family.

We are sorry we will not be able to personally express our sympathy. We met Mr. Groth as the Lasalle High School cross country coach, who made life runners out of all of our kids.  Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

I started my teaching career at LaSalle HS and observed Larry teaching Geometry there.  I went onto Adams and when LaSalle HS closed, Larry and I again taught math at the same school.  This time I was the one teaching Geometry.  Larry was excellent at classroom management and he always kept his cool.  He taught across the hall from me for many years.  The conversations I remember the most were the ones where he talked about his lovely daughters.  He was so proud of them.  I'm glad he had some time to enjoy his retirement even if those years were so short.
