“I’m home!” … Larry B. Daniels, 83 of Eyota, MN passed away from
lymphoma on Wednesday, October 28, 2020 at Methodist Hospital in
Rochester surrounded by his wife and children.

(Rod) Hammel. He is also survived by his grandchildren: Tim, Seth,
Garrett, Aaron, Cierra, Karly, Jerrin, Kellin, Lukas, Riley, and Kaylee. He
also had 10 great-grandchildren whom he lovingly referred to as his

is now truly “home”.
