Larry I'm going to miss you brother I already do. I just found out today about your passing at the barbershop. I was in the back tv room watching it when I happen to glance down and seen your obituary on the wall. I couldn't and still can't believe it, that you are gone myfriend. The last time I seen you was at the barbershop two years ago. Dressed nice like you always did and you always made sure that your shirts were tight fitted, so you could flex your muscles and that big smile LOL. I'm going to miss the times we worked out together at the gym, you me and Jeremy. I'm at a lost for words, but I know that you are now dancing and singing up in heaven. Like you would do in the gym when you played your Temptations singing along. I'm so glad that we met and we became good frlends. My sincere condolences to the family. God Bless you myfriend ill see you again when my name is called!

When I think of our dear and and beloved brother Larry, it's hard to believe he is gone. He was always so helpful to everyone during our conventions.And a shining light at our pioneer meetings. I am amazed to see that he was born on my wedding day. That even make me feel closer to him.May our Heavenly Father's Holy Spirit comfort you at this time of sadness and grief.We all look forward to the day our friend and brother will honor us again with his loving presents.That hope too is a gift documented in the recorded word given once again by Almighty God above.Warm christian love to your family.

Larry will be deeply missed by all who knew him. We will always remember Larry at the former Giant Open Air Market with his big smile, great attitude, sincerity and caring to help others. Larry was a good Samaritan and a positive role model . Our prayers and thoughts are with the family and may his memories live on as he smile upon us in Heaven. Rest in peace Larry!
