Larry was someone I always felt close to like a brother. He stood up for many righteous causes and I admired that always. I will miss our occasional conversations and hope his family is finding comfort in many great memories. Rest In Peace Larry. You were a light extinguished way too soon. But now you are in God’s loving arms.

I worked with Larry back in the late 80’s and early 90’s.. had the best time working for CFC in those days especially having Larry as our guy that was in charge.. even though Larry was in charge but would do anything to get a job done even if he had to put his own physical body in the way to make sure it was possible to have the best outcome!!! Also had the privilege to have Larry as a softball player to have him on our team.. had some great teams back in the day, just like at work he gave his very best on the ball field!! That’s just the kind of man (Larry) !! Was!!! I will surely miss him for sure!! Great friend,teammate,and work employee!!! Very sad day for me for sure!!!

Loved Larry like a brother. Played poker with him and his son Bob. One of the nicest man I ever had a pleasure to meet. Always happy even when he was sick always willing to help anyone. He helped us a lot I will really miss him. But at least he is not in pain and in heaven watching over us. I enjoyed hearing about his grand kids he was always telling me about them .he was so proud of them. He talked a lot about his son Bob he said he was proud of the man he had become and loved him so much. He mentioned his daughter Becky how pretty she was and how proud of her. Did not know his other kids but I know he love them all. His family was his pride and joy. Sure will miss my friend
But he will always be in my mind and heart. Thank God I got to know him. Now he is with God and still taking care of his family . He will always be here. Sorry to the family for your loss but remember he is and always be with you
Love you all God bless you my prayers for you all.
