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. 

Laramieattended Missouri Auction School in 2005. In addition to auctioning on sale day, he is active in setting up and preparing the auction items. In addition to auctioning, he is the owner of a commercial mowing business. 

Lacey (Drenon) Smallwood has been clerking and cashiering the sales for over twenty years. She graduated from Mo Auction School in 2017, 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!  CooperSmallwood graduated from Missouri Auction School early in 2021. Most of the time you can find Cooper in the office cashiering the sales, but ready when needed in the auction ring. 

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! 

We are very pleased to have ConnieBurke's experience and expertise of clerking/cashiering auctions. Connie worked alongside 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. 

Willis Miller just recently started helping us. He has experience in setting up auctions and he does an excellent job of clerking. 

GeorgeKeightley 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.
