So sad to hear about Larry's passing.
I had worked for and with him for most of my career at Lane. He was a good man and was truly unflappable even under the most stressful business climates during those times.
He taught me a lot about being a professional manager and for that I will always be grateful to have known him...

Larry and MJ were not just our neighbors in Rock Barn, but they were our best friends. We traveled together, spent many a night on their back porch, Larry grilling out, drinking, laughing and making wonderful memories. Memories that will stay in my heart forever. Larry will be missed by all.

As Larry would always say when we toasted with our drinks: "Here's to good friends, tonight is kinda special!"

RIP Larry. Keep the wine flowing for us.

I met Larry in late 70’s after he moved back to NC. & we both worked at Schweiger. Never would have imagined he would play such a prominent part in my & my family’s life. Larry was everything that’s good in this world. Well liked, but most of all trustworthy & loyal to the max!

My deepest condolences to his wonderful family. They know, along with all who knew & loved him, what a fine person he was! RIP, Friend. David Harder

Larry was a most professional manager and salesman who quietly commanded great respect from his peers and customers during his tenure at Lane/Action. Rest In Peace comrade,
