I worked with Larry at Mid-South Mfg. from 1996 to 2000. He was always friendly, helpful and just generally open for a visit to his office. I will miss his smile, kindness, jokes and friendship. Prayers for his family that you may keep warm memories.....

I’m so sad that you aren’t with us any longer, Larry. Your spirit, and certainly your memories, will always be with us. You never failed to make me smile, usually with your own grin that conveyed something entertaining was about to happen, typically a riddle, trick, or any number of puzzles to rack my brain for hours. I always loved you and will miss you. God bless you, Larry.

Carolyn, family and good friends. We are so sorry for your loss. Larry was a great friend and always made us laugh. Old Charters birdie juice, a few cents on each hole when golfing - golfing will not be quiet the same. A true Tennessee gentleman. Larry will alway have a memorable place in the hearts of our family.
With love to all from the Vandervelde family. ❤️💐

I only knew Larry for the past several years but in that time he became a great friend. Always in a good mood and had a joke to tell.
We played golf in Florida and he was a terrific player and kept us entertained with his good sense of humor
I will certainly miss this man as a friend in my life.
My sincere condolences to Carolyn and the family

So sad to hear you have played your last game with us. Be it pool, golf or cards. We will miss your easy smile, your warm heart, your incredible sense of humour and on the odd occasion relieving you of a few pennies. Our deepest condolences to Carolyn and family, thank you for sharing Larry with us.
We will have a sip of Old Charter next time we are together.
Rest in Peace my friend!
