Larry Tredway

July 12, 1939 — February 15, 2024

Galva, KS

Larry M. Tredway, 84, of Galva, KS, passed away on February 15, 2024, surrounded by his wife and children. Larry is survived by his loving wife of over 59 years, Berenice (Johnson).  Larry is also survived by two sons Brent (Jena) of Houston TX and Burton (Jane) of Wichita KS, as well as a sister Donna Ruth Graham of Mesa, AZ.  Larry was also “Papa” to 8 grandchildren, Ryan, Haley, Lindsey, Lilly, Layla, and Jonathon, Jena and Jaden.  He was preceded in death by his parents George and Beulah Tredway of Burden, KS.


Larry was an avid K-State Fan. He and Bernie held season football tickets and attended a countless number of games over the years. Everyone was always welcome at the Tredway’s tailgate, and nobody ever left hungry or thirsty. 


Larry was very civic and community minded as he called Galva home for over 50 years.  He served numerous terms on the Canton-Galva School Board as well as on the Galva City Council.  He was the first to volunteer when his sons were active in school and was always proud to help sponsor any local events and activities that promoted the local community. Larry never missed his sons’ games and could be seen attending Canton-Galva sporting events long after his two sons graduated. He was also very passionate about his grandchildren and attended their sporting events whenever he could.


For nearly 50 years, Larry wholeheartedly served many clients as an Insurance Agent.  He considered many of his clients close personal friends. The personalized service he provided was second to none. These clients knew that with one phone call, Larry would be out the door to visit them to meet all their needs.


A visitation will be held at Stockham Family Funeral Home, 205 North Chestnut St., McPherson, KS 67460 on Friday, February 23rd from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM.  The funeral service will be held at 10:30 AM on Saturday, February 24th at the McPherson First United Methodist Church, 1200 E Kansas Ave, McPherson, KS 67460 with a graveside committal following at the Empire Cemetery near Galva, KS.
