Port Washington native Edwin A. Large Jr. brought comfort and humor to many people during his life, leaving a legacy of blessings, his family said.
    “His charm and style were only exceeded by his generous disposition and willingness to help and serve others,” his family noted.
    One of Mr. Large’s favorite phrases was “deo gratias,” Latin for “Thanks be to God,”  a phrase often used by his mother Olive to show gratitude for a blessed life.
    His family said Mr. Large’s life touched many friends far and wide who called him “an angel who saved their life,” adding, “He was a blessing to us all.”
    Mr. Large died Monday, June 26, in Waukesha. He was 83.
    Mr. Large, who lived in Waukesha, was born on May 24, 1934, to Edwin Sr. and Olivia “Olive” Kultgen Large.
    He grew up on his family’s farm in the Town of Port Washington and graduated from Port Washington High School in 1952.
    He attended the seminary at Mount Calvary in Detroit, becoming a novitiate Capuchin monk in the Franciscan Order of the Roman Catholic Church.
    After 10 years, Mr. Large left the monastery.    
    On Dec. 26, 1964, he married Erma Dries.
    The couple settled in Saukville, where they raised their two children, who Mr. Large described as “his life’s greatest treasures.”
    In 1962, Mr. Large became the director of communications for Simplicity Manufacturing in Port Washington. Later, he was an advertising executive for Outboard Marine Corp. in Lincoln, Neb.
    When he and his family returned to Wisconsin, he founded Carpets at Large, a floor-covering store in Watertown, that he and his family ran until his retirement in 1996.
    Mr. Large is survived by his Erma Large-Wollen of Arizona; children, Maria Robinson of San Francisco and Jordan (Keye) of Delafield; and grandchildren Julien and Amelia Robinson and Oliver, Jack and Stellan Large.
    He is further survived by his sister Annabelle (Franklin) Karrels of Port Washington; and his extended family through marriage, Nancy Totzke of South Carolina, Francis and Barbara Pierron of Saukville, Budd and Irene Humphrey of Lake Geneva and Fred and Deb Dries of Fredonia.
    Mr. Large was preceded in death by his brothers-in-law Jerry Dries and Gene Totzke.
    A celebration of Mr. Large’s life will be held in late July for his friends and family.
    Memorials are suggested to Richard’s Place, c/o Corrie Fulwiler, P.O. Box 294, Waukesha 53187-0294.

Thomas E. Koby, 51, died from cancer Saturday, June 24, in his Saukville home.
He owned TK Restoration and specialized in masonry.
“He was always working on patios and chimneys, and he even built the ‘Welcome to Grafton’ sign you see coming off of I-43,” his sister Jill Koby said. “He also had a passion for working on cars in his Port Washington shop.”
Mr. Koby was born Feb. 5, 1966, in Port Washington.
“He was the most giving person. He’d give anyone the shirt off his back,” his sister said. “Many guys he taught told him he’s the reason they were hired for other jobs, because they had worked for him. They told him he made them what they are today.”
Mr. Koby is survived by his children Jessica Kudek, Douglas Haydin, Miranda Koby and Abigail Koby; six grandchildren; sisters Beth Connell and Jill Koby; and brother Jack.
The family will be holding a celebration of life on Sunday, July 9, from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Roadhouse of Cedarburg.
In lieu of flowers, memorials to the family are appreciated.
The Eernisse Funeral Home, Port Washington, is assisting the family.
