June 27, 2020

Larry and Steve were a team for a lot of years. Larry came to Clio,Michigan in 1965 and worked with me at our uncle Huna's concrete plant. From there he served in Nam for four years. After wards we began Riddle Bros. Motors. Larry and I ran several auto dealerships as partners. I'll miss Larry but I'm glad that we had so much time together. I know Larry was a good husband, father, brother and son. If you knew him, you will love and remember him. Larry was a solid Christian and was the reason l accepted Christ many years ago. I pray for his family and friends during this time.
