Larry Decker*, ChFC, Financial Consultant

With 38 years in the financial services business under his belt, Larry Decker knows what it means to negotiate market fluctuations and still help his clients reach their retirement goals. 

Larry started his career with Forrest Gorkowski in 1978 when the two men launched Gorkowski, Decker and Associates.

In 2007, Joe Decker, Larry’s youngest son, joined the firm and started working side-by-side with Larry. Larry’s oldest son, Steve, followed suit in 2008 where he eventually took over Forrest’s book of business.

“Once Forrest retired in 2011, we three Decker boys needed to figure out what the next step would be for our business," Larry said. "That’s when we started looking for partnership potential with similar financial services firms.”  

“Creative Financial Partners, LLC had been on our radar for some time and it seemed like a good idea to reach out to them first. Why? Because they shared the same values, ethics and tenacity that my sons and I represent.” Larry said. 

In 2016 Decker Financial Group was born and has entered into an agreement with Creative Financial Partners.

“I’m so very lucky to do what I do.  Welcoming two of my sons to the office has been a great honor for me. Not a lot of people are able to make a living doing what they love. Nor are they able to build a thriving business with their loved ones,” notes Larry Decker. 

Larry lives in Metamora, Ohio, with his wife, Denise.  Larry’s third son, Bill, is a personal trainer and lives locally.  In his spare time, Larry likes to mentor children at Evergreen Elementary in Metamora.
