Larry, the son of Don and Betty (Heltzel) Lint, was born on November 11, 1951 in Newton. He was a lifelong resident of Newton, graduating from Newton High School in 1970. In June of 2014, Larry was united in marriage with his wife, RoxAnne, in Newton. Later in life, Larry went on to attend Indian Hills Community College for his truck driving CDL. After graduation, Larry joined the United States Army and served his country in the Vietnam War from 1971 to 1973. When he returned, he worked at a variety of places including as a police officer for the city of Newton, at Dealer’s Warehouse, McKleeven Lumber, for Mike Brook's Trucking doing over-the-road trucking, and most recently in retail.

He enjoyed several mission trips with the church. Additionally, he went on 2 Freedom Flights, one in 2011 with his father, and the other in 2013. Larry was an avid hunter and  fisherman.
