He also served as a Seminole County Juvenile Arbitrator.

I am deeply sorry to hear of Larry's passing. I first met Larry in 2003 at The Florida Safety Council. He was a motorcycle safety instructor, and so was I. He loved to teach. He had a great work ethic. I learned a lot from him. We enjoyed many years of working together and friendship afterwards.
