I have so many fond memories of Larry. He loved to talk about golf, and I knew that was one of his passions. He exuded a quiet confidence that I always admired. It wasn't until a year or so before he retired that I realized he was enthusiastic about motorcycles...I realized his interests were many and his love for life was never-ending! Larry always made you feel special when you were in his company, and he will never be forgotten. RIH my friend...

I am honored to have worked for Larry for 20+ years and to know him for nearly 25 years. You were one of the good ones and I thank you for all the opportunities you gave me. You were generous, caring and loyal. You lead the staff to be the best and those of us left will continue showing what a great team you built. I pray for your family to take comfort that your aren't suffering anymore, God bless you all!.

My Brother, this is a bittersweet moment for me. I hate that you're gone, but I'm relieved that you're not hurting anymore. Make sure you save a seat for me at Jughead Saloon so we can share some Johnnie Walker together again. I love you Brother.
