Larry was a wonderful person and we loved him dearly. It was a honor to have known him and he will be missed. We have great memories of Larry stopping by the shop just to say hi or seeing him at the antique shop looking around for the next bargain. His garage was a work of art. I was at Johnny Appleseed last year standing in line for a snack and out of the corner of my eye I saw a elderly man walking rather fast towards me with a walker. As I turned, I was prepared to catch the gentleman before he ran into me. To my surprise it was Larry with that big beautiful smile. We laughed over his silliness. We are better people for having the pleasure of knowing Larry. May God bless your family. Carl and Bev Marcum (Mechanix Unlimited)

I remember when Larry worked at Hires. He was the kindest and sweetest gentleman. Always had a smile and brought a smile to those around him. Prayers to all his loved ones. May God grant Larry eternal peace and His perpetual light shine upon him
