Larry- you have left this earth but you will never be forgotten. You are now with Kenny and with your parents. You are in a good place even though you have left a sad hole in our hearts. Heaven is a better place now.

I have many wonderful memories growing up as part of the Aker clan. Larry never changed, always the gentleman and so much fun to be around. My thoughts and prayers are with Carole, Keith, and their family. My dad, Jess Aker, loved Larry like a son, and really enjoyed teasing sweet Carole. We will miss you, Larry.
