The pictures that the family have shared really capture Larry's vibrancy. That's how I have always seen him - active, engaged, productive. I want to extend my sincerest sympathies to the family and to the many who have known and loved Larry.

Larry was a second father to me since I was in India with him in 1972. He impacted my life in so many positive ways, more than anyone else. I will miss him dearly, but I know I’ll see him in heaven.
Thanks for the memories Lar! You and your family are in my prayers.

Larry was such an incredible influence on my life and on my family that it is difficult to even try to describe.
He was truly a man totally for God.
He gave his life in service to all including his wife and the children of Joe Campanella as well as all who were fortunate enough to know him!
He was the true Prayer Warrior always trusting completely in his Lord and Savior in any situation.
He will be truly missed by many but I am sure he is before the throne of God interceding for each of us.
Larry fought the good fight and has now received his crown!
We miss you terribly Larry but wow! Heaven!
PS He was also a pretty good racquetball player except when Nan would slow him down with some chocolate ice cream!

Larry was a man for all seasons. His intellect, love for others, humility and devotion to family are a model for all men to follow. As one of the founders of the Catholic Men's Fellowship at St. Margarets Parish in Bel Air he provided spiritual support and growth for many men. Until we meet again my friend, your memory will always be with me.
