Prayers for your family. I worked with Larry at the bank. He was one of my favorite people. I always enjoyed my conversations with him. We would talk about our families; his love for his family always shined bright. He was so proud of his children. Larry was truly an amazing man and will be missed tremendously.

Larry was my classmate, neighbor and friend who I have known since he came to Desoto in the second grade. Although our paths rarely crossed since school days I have always held his friendship in my heart. Prayers and condolences for his family and friends.

I have fond memories of Larry and Cindy inviting my family over for dinner when I was a kid and playing Catchphrase afterward.

Larry and Cindy have always been such wonderful examples of love and service, shining God’s light to those around them. Through every stage of my life, from childhood to college to marriage to raising kids, they have been there supporting me in some way.

Larry will be so greatly missed. He was such a kind and loving person. Thankful to the Lord for our hope in Christ, but I know this is still a hard time for the family. Keeping you all in our prayers.

We offer our sincere condolences to Cindy and the whole extended Smith family.

Our cherished memory is when we visited Larry & Cindy in October 2016 and they opened their house to us. When we left, on our way to Barnesville, Ohio, I forgot my briefcase and I realized it after 1.5 hrs. I called and Larry offered to meet us half way in Van Wert, Oh.
