Larry James Prost


Larry James Prost, 68, of Cape Girardeau died Monday, Aug. 23, 2021 at his home.
He was born Feb. 28, 1953 in Cape Girardeau to Merlin H. “Bob” and Mary Margaret Schafer Prost.
Larry was a graduate of St. Vincent de Paul High School in Perryville.
He was the owner of Larry’s Auto Sales in Perryville.
He was a member of St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Cape Girardeau.
Larry’s beautiful blue eyes and smile could light up a room. He always had a joke to tell and a laugh that was contagious. Anyone who knew Larry knows there were several things that he held dear to his heart, his Catholic faith, family, cars, music, and dancing. Larry never met a stranger and could start a conversation with anyone. He had a kind, honest, sincere, and loving soul. Although he will be incredibly missed, our hearts are comforted to think of how sweet the Reunion In heaven was between him and his dad.
Survivors include two daughters, Melissa (Chris) Jones of Marshall, Missouri, Erica (Scott) Sims of Blackwater, Missouri; son, Vincent (Kayla Glency) Prost of Cape Girardeau; six grandchildren, Aden, Blaine and Addi Jones, Mollie and Owen Sims, and Alyssa Prost.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
