Marjie, Dale, Lynn and family. I am deeply saddened by the passing of Larry.

We were reared in adjoining communities, attended St. James School and worked together at Parker for 30 years. After retirement we kept in touch. I remember he and Marjie attending concerts at St. James, especially those by Johnny Kiser - not to mention the chats we had at Tipton's Diner and the paint store.

He never was one to refrain from expressing his opinion and you always knew where he stood on an array of subjects ranging from politics, finances and insurance to "everything just costs too much anymore."

I will miss him.

May God bless.

Well, Larry and I spent many hours on the phone talking about everything from commission meetings to him driving home from Fort Knox in a pouring rain with a huge hole in his windshield. Really will miss him as he was a little stubborn but a very good man. RIP Larry.
