In 1969, Larry attended Mason City, Iowa School of Auctioneering and started Drenon Auction Service. Now, many hundreds of central Missouri auctions later, Larry sells with the same motto: treat everyone with honesty, respect, and integrity.
At a young age, Larry started working at a livestock auction and later was given the privilege of auctioning the cattle there. He eventually owned/operated the livestock auction. Thus auctioneering became his passion; a passion he still enjoys after almost 50 years. Even though the livestock auction torch has now been passed, Larry, along with youngest son Laramie, keeps busy with on-site auctions.
Larry and his wife, Linda, live on a farm near Lincoln where Larry raises beef cattle and quarter horses.Linda cashiers the auctions
and is owner/broker of United Country Lincoln Realty in Lincoln, MO.
Laramie attended Missouri Auction school in 2005. In addition to
auctioning on sale day, he is involved in the advertising and
marketing side of the auction business.
Lacey (Drenon) Smallwood has been clerking and cashiering the sales for over twenty years. She just recently graduated from Mo Auction
School, and will be helping Larry and Laramie with the auctioning.
She is a real estate broker at Lincoln Realty.
We are proud to see the next generation taking an interest in the auction business! Cooper Smallwood now helps to cashier the sales. Cooper is in the dual credit program, currently in his second year at SFCC.
William McGhee helps to set up the auction and works as one of the ring men. William lives near Windsor. During off - auction season, he might be found in the South Pacific, Canada, Colorado, you never know!
Dotty Wood helps us out when we need an extra cashier, but mostly you can find her behind the computer taking care of the websites, social media, and marketing.
We are very pleased to have Connie Burke's experience and expertise clerking the auctions. Connie worked along side her husband, Roger for many years before his retirement from the auction business.
George Keightley has been a mainstay in Drenon Auction for over thirty-five years. He and his wife, Wilma, are "family" and we just can't do without them! Although George is not working as much as he used to, we still bring him out of "retirement" occasionally.
