I am so sorry to hear this news and I offer heartfelt condolences to Larry’s family. Our paths crossed often during our GM days. Larry was systematic, thoughtful and a great teacher. A pleasure to deal with always. What I remember best as I think of him now, is his wonderful laugh! Rest in peace Larry.

Larry and I both attended Ryerson in Toronto and started at GM Canada at the same time. We became friends and over the years had many pleasant discussions. Larry was certainly very kind and capable and had a way of helping others when they had run out of ideas.
God bless you Larry and our best wishes to Nancy and family at this time.

Larry was a very knowledgeable person who was very generous with his time. He taught me many things. His infectious laugh will be well received in heaven.

I am so sorry for your loss. Larry was the best boss I ever had at G.M. Those hectic years in the early 80's when Larry's SWAT team was helping the dealers struggle through the introduction of computer controls on vehicles was exhilarating. Mike, Alan, George and I were going in every direction but Larry could calmly centre us. I will never forget him and his kind ways.
God Bless you Larry

As a member of the General Motors Dealer Audit Group I worked with Larry for 12 years. In all my dealings and conversations with Larry I found him always open, honest and respectful. Although I worked in western Canada I always enjoyed our times when Larry would bring the group together to discuss issues and have fellowship.
I was sad to hear of Larry's passing and wish to pass along my heartfelt condolences to his family. He will be sorely missed by all those he touched.

Respectfully
Steve Medhurst
