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 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 an associate broker at Lincoln Realty in Lincoln, MO.

Laramie attended Missouri Auction school in 2005. In addition to

auctioning on sale day, he is active in setting up and preparing

the auction items

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 the owner and acting broker of 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 has earned his AA degree at SFCC, and has been accepted in the pre-vet program at a university. 

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

Kelly Lehman is usually the person who starts the preparation process by boxing and sorting the items  to get ready for the rest of the crew to set out prior to the sale. 

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.
