We were so sorry to hear of Larry's passing. Unfortunately we were out of state and could not attend the services. Our memories of Larry are ones with a smile on his face. We will forever remember Larry and Marge at the top of the bleachers cheering on the Ridgewood Generals! We admired the way they supported generations of family as well as teams of students year after year~
This loss is a big hole however he certainly shared in so many happy memories. Those memories will carry you as well as your faith in God above. Larry, you left behind a wonderful legacy! Rest in Peace
