Hi I'm Larry Agle

I love America. My father came to America for a better life. I'm blessed to have raised my family here. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband and a dad. My wife, Mary, and I met at UCLA. We have been blessed with 10 children. Among our ten kids are seven batchelor degrees, two masters degrees and a juris doctorate. So far, we have 16 grandchildren. I retired from my career as a CPA after after 46 interesting, challenging and exciting years.. Even though Mary graduated in art, she worked with me in my CPA practice for 17 years. My career took me to many "exotic" places in the world including the atoll of Kwajalein and the island of Guam in the south Pacific plus Americn Samoa and Australia. My European business travel included England, France, Germany and Italy. Now that I've retired, I find plenty of time to play golf, something I never had time for during my working years. I also have more time to volunteer to provide service to my church and my community. Life is good!

Why I am a Mormon

My grandparents joined the Church in Norway and settled in Salt Lake City with their seven children, including my father. Even though I grew up attending church meetings, I had to study and pray to receive my own witness of the truth of the gospel. I was married before I gained such a witness. Now I fervently believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ. I believe that God lives, that Jesus is the Christ, and that through Him, and only through Him, we can all return to live in the presence of God.

How I live my faith

Over the years, I have served on a school board and a home owners' association board. I have been active and held leadership roles in community organizations. I try to be a good citizen of our town, our state and our country. I live by the golden rule. I live my religion seven days a week. I try to do good unto others. I try to love everyone, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation. Although my parents have left this mortal life, I try to live as I know they would have wanted me to live. I am a devoted husband and father. I serve in the Mesa Temple each week.
