Larry worked with my husband Rex for so many years. Rex thought the world of Larry and we would go and listen to him play the drums any time we could. Now, you are in Heaven with Rex so hit those drums a few times. You were an awesome man with a smile always on your face.

Cheyanne, Diesel, and Adalyn are mourning the loss of their “Grandpa Badgie”. Badge was always a caring, positive person. He supported these kids in all their activities, from ball games to concerts to church activities. He loved attending and making them feel special. He also loved having them at his gigs at the fair and local festivals, as he would always make them feel they were his special guests at shows. He shared his musical talent with Diesel, having much patience to teach him how to play the drums. He always had a smile on his face. Badge, you will be missed!

I was part of those football teams at MV. Our records weren’t impressive, but we were a close knit group and our coaches were the best and the coolest. I have fond memories of “Badge”. He always made it fun. Rest In Peace Coach.

My brother Larry will dearly be missed. Larry my gentle giant as I called him was one of the kindest and lovable soul Iknow. He always was a great jokester and had me laughing all the time. I was three years older but he always acted like my big brother. Larry helped me and my daughters navigate this some time cruel world. I love and miss my brother but God needed him to still watch over us. I will always remember that smile it lit up my life every time I saw him.☺ I will always miss and love you my giant Angel. Gone but never forgotten 😘❤❤❤🙏🏾🙏🏾
