Lawrence Paul “Larry” Tong, 75, of Libby, passed away at his home on Jan. 18, 2020.

He was born Feb. 27, 1944 in Stanley, N.D., to Ernest and Doris Tong. He attended school in North Dakota. Upon graduation, he worked on a cattle ranch until 1965.

Larry packed up his saddle and his cowboy ways and headed for Wyoming. He wanted to see the mountains, so he made a detour to Montana and never left.

Larry worked in the sawmills doing various jobs until he retired. He enjoyed training horses, team roping, rodeos, country music, Dutch-oven cooking, hunting, and spending time with family and friends. He liked people and was well-liked in return. He was a member of Libby Christian Church.

His survivors include his wife, Peggy Tong; brother, Darryl Tong of North Dakota; son, Shawn (Sarah) Tong of Kalispell; stepdaughters, Cheryl (Ellis) Stapley of Lewiston, Idaho, Cassie Johnson of Denver, Robbee (Joe) Pennock of Troy; seven grandkids and two great-grandkids.

Services will be at 11 a.m., Jan. 25 at Libby Christian Church. Online condolences and memories may be shared at www.schnackenbergfh.com.
