PGWP Larry Hanshaw, 1935-2024

The Grand Aerie is deeply saddened to announce the passing of Past Grand Worthy President Larry Hanshaw (1935-2024).

Larry joined the Fraternal Order of Eagles in 1957 in Fairfield, Iowa, rising to the Worthy President position in just five years. 

In 1973-1974, he served as the Iowa State Worthy President, bringing in the largest membership class to that point in Iowa’s history. He was appointed West Central Regional President three years later. 

In 1979, Larry transferred to Des Moines Aerie #109, which he remained a member of until his passing. He served Des Moines for many years as a Ritual Advisor until starting his journey through the Grand Aerie in 1993. 

Larry was installed as Grand Worthy President for the 1999-2000 term at the International Convention in Nashville, Tenn. He listed his installation among his proudest moments as an Eagle, along with being selected for the Iowa State Aerie Hall of Fame and the Grand Aerie Hall of Fame. 

He was retired from the Iowa National Guard, where he held the position of Military Personnel Sergeant and enjoyed traveling the Eagles’ jurisdiction and meeting his brothers and sisters. 

He is survived by his wife, Pam, and their children and grandchildren.
