Larry Melanie portrait

I'm Larry Grove and my wife is Melanie. We have three adult sons, but I have also gained some daughters too!

family portrait

Our family has grown through my son's marriages: Austin to Janae (and then their kids), Alan to Katie, and Andrew to Bethany.   Here are some more family portraits.


Our family interests have changed over the years. However, Christianity and making music are our enduring distinctives.

My parents were missionaries in Japan and Brazil, so my experience growing up as a Missionary Kid was unique. I have always been a technically inclined geek. Family friends would remember me as the toddler that liked to carry around an electrical extension cord! These days I might make a robot.

We live in Bothell, Washington, USA. You can email me at
