Larry and I were friends for over 58 years. We shared a lot of good times and a lot of laughter together. We were roommates for a time at ETSU. Every day was an adventure, and Larry always had a comedic perspective on what was going on around us. At ETSU, I had to keep coming up with new ways to make him get up when the alarm went off so he would not miss his second period class. I had a first and third and would sometimes get back to the dorm to find that he had not even rolled over since I left him. We shared a lot of fun driving our TR3s together, sometimes racing them on the back roads near Buffalo Mtn. As part of our educational experience at ETSU we learned where we could buy draft beer for a $1 per gallon, if we brought our own jug. We never got into any real trouble together, but experienced a lot of god times. Through the whole time at ETSU Sherry was the only girl on his mind. Our escapades never involved girls, unless you count the cows we tried to tip over in a field near Jonesborough. Periodically, at Eastman, Larry and I would have lunch together or otherwise sit down and catch up. Sandra and I always enjoyed our time together with Sherry and Larry. Though Larry and I have not seen one another much since we retired (I guess we were too busy) I shall miss him. I am confident he is in Heaven and we will meet again someday!

Dear Sherry and Family,

We were so sorry to learn of Larry's passing. We have fond memories of being neighbors on Edgewood Circle and sharing games and food at the Honakers.

With Sincere Sympathy, Pat and John
