Larry Feist

February 27, 1943 — September 25, 2018

Manchester, OK


February 27, 1943-September 25, 2018

Larry R. Feist of Manchester, Oklahoma was born February 27, 1943, in Anthony, Kansas. He passed from this life on Tuesday, September 25, 2018 in Oklahoma City.

On January 15, 1966 Larry married Janette Carter. The couple raised their family in Medford. During that time, he was a school teacher and was self employed as a custom harvester, sign shop owner and farm equipment salesman. In 1995 he and Janette moved to Guymon, Oklahoma where they worked in the crop industry. In 2000, they returned to Manchester to farm. Beginning in September 2006, Larry and Janette served faithfully in the Retrouvaille Ministry to help couples heal and renew their marriages. Throughout his life he was an active member and served in a variety of ministry roles at Saint Mary’s Catholic Church in Medford and Saint Mary Assumption in Wakita. Larry was a social bug and he thoroughly enjoyed visiting with everyone, especially his family and friends. He was generally among the last ones to leave a social event. This was true as recent as the 2018 Wakita 16th Celebration which he attended nine days before his death. Larry also enjoyed farming, fishing, auctions and telling stories and jokes. He was special to all of his grandchildren, nieces and nephews

Larry is survived by daughter, Tammy Jacobs (Dru) of Yukon, Oklahoma; sons, Brian Feist (Christina) of Ponca City, Oklahoma; Doug Feist (Christina) of Collinsville, Mississippi; grandchildren, Mackenzie and Carson Jacobs, Briana and Tyler Feist, Kayla and Jacob Feist, Makalee, Rylee, and Harlee Taylor; brothers, Marion Feist of  Hollister, California; Leroy (Sonya) Feist of  Topeka, Kansas and Gary (Peggy) Feist of Wakita, Oklahoma; sisters, Anna (Gus) Garcia of Columbus, Georgia and Vonda Lee of  Carlsbad, California; brother-in-law, Olin Carter( Barbara) of Valparaiso, Indiana; many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 50 years, Janette Carter; parents, Frank and Catherine Feist; brothers, Melvin Feist and J.C. Feist  and sister, Beatrice Feist Drouhard.

Larry donated his body to Oklahoma Health Science Center’s Willed Body Program for medical education and/or research throughout Oklahoma.
