Having been introduced to Larry in 1972, he was always my idol in our business relationship. Larry along with B J Smith approved my membership in the Hot Springs Board of REALTORS. Through the years, until I retired in 2010, I always admired his mother, Selma and Andy, his son. Jan, a very sweet wife, was also present at many functions of our REALTOR's association. Rest in peace my friend and know that your contribution to Hot Spring community shall shine for decades.

Larry Meyers joined Hot Springs National Park Rotary in October of 1986 and was a faithful and active member for our club for 35 years. Larry was a Paul Harris Fellow and showed his commitment to our club with his exemplary attendance, which was over 90% during his membership.

Larry had a smile that was hard to match along with a firm handshake and engaging personality to anyone he met as was the case when I first became a member of the club.

Larry was one of the first Rotarians to meet me in my first few meetings and he made me feel welcomed , again with that wonderful smile. Just as he did with me, Larry welcomed any and all visitors to our meetings.

Larry was a strong leader in our club and he will be missed greatly by all of his Rotarian brothers and sisters.

We wish our sincere condolences and prayers for the Larry Meyers family as he will be greatly missed by all of us at Hot springs National Park Rotary.

Chuck Launius
President Hot Springs National Park Rotary

Jan, Darrin, Andy and Cindy: I was saddened to hear of Larry's passing. He was a special person in my life as he was on the commission when I was hired. He's the last of those serving at that time. I appreciated his support through the years. Larry was one of the most professional, concerned and knowledgeable persons I ever knew in the real estate business. He was always thinking of ways we could improve the profession for both practitioners and consumers. His influence will live on in many ways. You all will be in my hearts and prayers. Your husband and father will be missed.
