I haven’t seen mr. D in many years. I was Scott’s friend growing up in Fairview and mr. D was like a second dad to me at times. He coached ( it seemed like ) every baseball team that I was on, took me down in the metro parks to investigate and to let off steam. He was part of cub scouts and Boy Scouts and was always there for us kids. I will always remember those times of my child hood as being a great time in life - and I’m glad Mr. D was part of it. You will be missed greatly Mr. D. See you on the other side coach D.

What a great guy Larry is! Always a joy to be around, work with, share ideas, and one of the best parents ever. He showed continuous support for his kids' involvement in academics, athletics, and everyday challenges. You gotta love a man like Larry because he was such a good influence. We'll all miss him, but know that the Lord is welcoming one of the best to his new home.

Love to all his family,
Chris & Terrie Garr

Dear DiLoreto Family,
Sharing in your sadness of the passing of Mr. D. He was a great guy who always had a smile and was fun to be around. Have lots of great memories of him from Park Edge Drive and his visit to OU for Fathers Weekend. We will miss him greatly and my thoughts are with your family.

Mr. DiLoreto was a great friend and neighbor to my family for decades.
I remember how he often asked about my Grandpa and my Uncle when they got sick, and how he brought us perfect tomatoes from his garden. He was always thoughtful and kind. I hope he didn’t mind that I raided his garage for baseball gear in the early 90s. I always brought it back.
My condolences to Mr. D’s family. He was a good man.

Larry was our neighbor for over thirty years. He was a dear friend to three generations of our family. When my brother Doug was gravely ill Larry visited him to give him encouragement and brighten his day. Larry was a good and honorable man and our entire family mourns his loss. We will remember him fondly.
