Larry loved stock car racing so much that Dean Pruett and I called him stock car Larry. I collected racing photos with Larry and talked to him often. He was one of the nicest guys I ever met. Turn one at Belle-Clair was where you'd find Larry every Friday night. My condolences to Larry's family.

We will miss seeing and talking with Larry at the Belle-Clair Speedway. Larry was a great fan of our sport. Opening night of the 2019 season we will have a moment of silence in his honor. God Speed Larry.

Larry often would call our funeral home after reading of a friend's passing to request a memorial card . We will miss those phone calls.
