My condolences to Donna and the family. Larry lived a full life of kindness and caring and I'm sure those memories will help the family through the hard days ahead. I first met Larry and his sister, Vickie, when they visited a cousin in my neighborhood. We met again a few years later at Lewiston High School. I'll always remember Larry as an easy-going and caring person. He had a wonderful sense of humor. He had served as a valued member of our class reunion committee for a number of years. RIP dear friend.

I have many fond memories of Uncle Larry, especially at Uncle Joe and Aunt Cecil’s camp on Beal’s Pond in Turner. He was a power house of a man who was committed to his family, friends and community. The giant of a man had a huge and compassionate heart and I know was proud of his children.

Larry was a good friend and neighbor of ours on Taylor Pond. We very much enjoyed our time with him during the summers and listening to his stories and words of wisdom. He helped us a great deal with the work we did to our camp. He always had the right tool for the job and always knew where to find it in his shed.

Our condolences to Donna and family. He will be greatly missed.

I’m so sad to hear of Uncle Larry’s passing. Heaven had certainly gained an awesome angel.
I have many many fond memories of Uncle Larry. He is the kindest most gentle man I know. The best thing in the world to me was an Uncle Larry hug. I always felt safe and truly loved.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do.
Fly high Uncle Larry. Say hi to everyone for me.
