We are very blessed that Larry was such a big part of our lives for so many years. He was always so upbeat and positive, and so much fun! We always knew that we would be laughing a lot when Larry was around! We especially enjoyed his company on our recent trips to Europe. A million laughs! He was also a world champion at "Living Life to the Fullest"!
God bless you Larry. We are all going to miss you a lot.
And God bless all of the O'Briens.

Love,
Kim and Ken

My deepest sympathies to Larry's family. Larry was a nice gentleman and loved to use my French background to text his friends who speak French. Always in a good mood, smiling and happy. We share the same appreciation and passion for traveling.RIP Larry. Your neighbor from the Galt and the Ocean Grill.

Although I only met Larry less than 4 years ago on a cruise it was as though we knew one another a lifetime. Larry was warm, engaging, sensitive, and witty. Larry was one of those individuals that you gravitate toward because of his immense personality.
I express my condolence to all of Larry's family and friends.
Your memories of Larry will surely put a smile on your face and a tear in your eye as you remember him.
