Larry A. Engberg, 64, of Newville, passed away on Sunday, November 14, 2010, with his wife and son, Andy by his side in Holy Spirit Hospital, Camp Hill. He was born on June 3, 1946, in Oakland, CA and was a son of the late Floyd and Elsie (Lindstrom) Engberg.

Larry graduated in 1964 from Scobey High School, Scobey, MT. In 1968, he graduated from Montana University, Bozeman, MT with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. In 1972, he received his Masters Degree in Psychology and in 1973 was awarded his PhD, both from the University of Colorado. Larry retired from Dickinson College after 30 years of service as a professor of psychology, a position he thoroughly enjoyed. His greatest joy in teaching was how he shaped his students minds and he was so proud when they went into related fields. He was a member of the Elks B. P. O. Carlisle Lodge 578, and he enjoyed fishing and doing woodworking in his workshop at home.

Larry is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 11 years, Diane E. (Hardy) Engberg, two sons; Eric (and his wife, Rikki) Engberg of Durham, NC and Andrew (and his wife, Amy) Engberg of Harrisburg, two step-sons; Shane (and his wife, Abby) Walsh of Tyler Hill, PA and Jeremy Walsh of Carlisle, his brother, Aubrey Engberg of Medicine Lake, MT, his sister, Betty Finch of Gillette, WY and his first grandson, Strummer. He also left behind his sweet puppy, Tommie. Larry was preceded in death by a sister, Phyllis of Cut Bank, MT.

A celebration of life service will be held at 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 21, 2010, which is also Larry and Diane's 11th wedding anniversary, in the Ewing Brothers Funeral Home, 630 S. Hanover St., Carlisle, PA. Burial will be private. Visitation will be held on December 21 from 6:00 p.m. until time of the services. The family would like to send special thanks to the Medical and Surgical Intensive Care Units at Holy Spirit Hospital and to the nurses and doctors who cared for Larry. You folks are very special angels, especially Angela, Kaycee, Alisha and Josh. God bless you all. Also, thank you to Select Speciality Hospital. Please take the time today to hold someone special in your life and let them know how much you love and care for them

I'm sorry to have lost touch since Larry's mom and dad died...
My best wishes for good memories to the family.

Lamont Lindstrom
We in the Psychology Department are saddened to hear of Larry's death.  He was a great mentor to me when I arrived at Dickinson.
 We'll miss him very much.

Diane and Engberg Family,
I am very sorry for your loss of Larry.  I am his cousin (my father, Eddie Lindstrom, was his mother's brother.)  My brother, Lamont, has recently started a genealogy project, even traveling to Oland, Sweden, and finding living relatives there.  He reached out recently to Larry, having found some genealogy information that Larry had put online, so it is so unfortunate he wasn't able to connect with Larry in time. But, it did lead us to hear about his passing.

I visited Uncle Floyd's and Auntie Elsie's farm in Montana I believe in the summer of 1969 (or there abouts).  I was a teenager, and my parents (Eddie and Jean) took us on a road trip from Martinez, California (where we were living) all the way to Montana.  I believe Aubrey was the only one still living at home at the time.  I still remember it as an amazing adventure, visiting many points of interest along the way, but the highlight was visiting my cousins on a working farm.

I am married to Lloyd Kitazono and living in Walnut Creek, California.  We have 4 daughters and 4 granddaughters.  You will probably be hearing more about the genealogy from my brother, including requests to add your family info.

Again, I am very sorry to hear of your loss.  I hope thoughts and prayers from friends and family will help you through this difficult time.

Jody Lindstrom Kitazono
Larry was a very special friend and person.  His belief in me gave me the courage to often do what I thought impossible.  He demanded much and believed that if one was to do something one ought to do it right. He challenged me to think, to dig for the truth and the not so obvious. I will miss him, think of him often, and keep him in my prayers daily.
