When I think of Larry, the thing that sticks out to me is how he always had a smile and pleasant word for me. Sometimes you could see in his eyes he had a lot on his mind but he always gave me his attention and a smile while we were talking . That made me feel good as a kid, that a man with so much going on was kind enough to listen to me ramble for a couple minutes.

Larry was a kind, soft-hearted person. As his daughter-in-law- the love and patience shown to Brittany and Dane was beyond meaningful. He even tried to teach me how to ski.... unsuccessfully I might add. He loved his family and prayed for us often. His gentle ways will truly be missed, but we know he is home now with his Savior and being tended to by angels. We love you.
