Uncle Larry was the very best at making people smile and laugh. My favorite memory is spending weeks during the summer with him and Aunt Dot watching the summer Olympics. My prayers are with you all, he was such a caring man, I know he will be greatly missed.

Larry was one of the kindest, sweetest, and most intelligent man that I have ever known. I remember when Dot and Larry married. I was just a child, but I could tell they were so much in love. That love reminded true for their entire married life. He loved and cherished Dot. He loved Randy and all of his family. He will be missed. I will always remember his warm and gentle smile. Rest in comfort and peace with God.

Uncle Larry was often considered one of our favorite uncles. My mother, Elizabeth (his big sister), would tell how mischievous Larry & Irvin were when they were young boys. But, we Steward kids remember him fondly for being so funny and full of life. We loved his tickles, his laugh, his stories, his speed boat, and of course his "cricket." Now he is finally home in the loving arms of Jesus and with all our loved ones who have gone before, but he will always remain in our hearts.
