Former St. Joseph mayor Larry Stobbs died Monday afternoon at age 84.

He served as mayor of St. Joseph from 1994-2002. His tenure coincided with St. Joseph achieving All-America City status in 1997.

Stobbs also served as mayor when St. Joseph got rid of its downtown parking meters - something he was strongly in favor of.

Before serving as mayor, Stobbs was a trooper with the Missouri State Highway Patrol for more than 30 years. He and his wife, Joyce, had been married for 63 years.
