I knew Larry over the past ten plus years as a partner, a friend, a father, a grandfather and an awesome human being. Words cannot express how I have been feeling since I heard about his passing, but I do know what others have said in their postings - that Larry is at peace and is in a place that we all should aspire to achieve. Words cannot ease the pain that his loved ones are experiencing, but I know that they have great memories of Larry that will never disappear. Just as they know that he will always be with them from this day forward.

While it hurts us all to lose Larry, he lived and knew Jesus's teachings in John 14. "Do not let your heart be troubled." "In my Father's house are many mansions...I go to prepare you a place." "(Jesus) is the Way, the Truth and the Life." Larry, like Jesus, was too short with us...and like the Disciples, we cannot believe Larry left us here, feeling alone and empty. But we have to see God's hand in this, as when Jesus left. "Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me." Larry is now where he wanted and wants to be...in the Father/Son. His great earthly smile pales in comparison to what it is now that he is with Jesus! Besides showing Jesus love to me and others, Larry lived Jesus's love in the care and tenderness he gave the 100 year old woman named Mary; she taught both of us that Jesus really did love the little children of the world. She preceded Larry to Jesus's side, and I can hear her saying..."Oh yes Lord, he is ready for your reward too!" I cry as I write this...but my tears are for Sally, family, friends and for my selfish being. But they are also tears of joy knowing that Larry has found His Peace. Keep building on our mansion up there, my brother and good friend.

Larry and Sally, both, made us so welcome at Woodridge Baptist Church and we are unbelievably saddened at Larry's passing. Such a great man, Christian, friend. He always had such a wonderful laugh and sense of humor., a heart of gold and he just loved people. David and I will never forget him. Much love and many prayers for Sally and family. Rest high on that mountain, Larry...you will be so missed, but we know we will see you again. This is another blessed assurance.

So sad we lost him so quickly. Larry was a great guy who made friends everywhere and made everyone he met feel important and special. I will miss my dear friend and Words with Friends competitor. He’s left many holes in a world that needs more easy-going nice guys like him.

Larry was one of my best friends because he had such an infectious laugh. My brother in tennis and every day life. We enjoyed way to many nights at the Tin Cup. I will miss him with all my heart. Always in my mind and my thoughts. You were truly taken to soon. My love goes out to his family and a promise I will always be there if you need something. He would have done that for me. Love you brother!

I met Larry in Denver...40 years ago. We were neighbors, became dear friends, shared many fun times, and cared deeply for each other’s family. My son grew up with Ryan, my daughter with kaela. We did Disney, beaches, birthday parties, and some of the best talks ever!!!!sally is my dearest oldest friend and we have loved each other as well! Taught each other how to survive motherhood! Murray and I (Jill) are devastated and our world has become smaller because of this loss. The silver lining is how lucky I feel to have had him in my corner!!!

It is with heavy hearts that we mourn the passing of Larry. For almost 40 years we have know him as a loving husband and father as well as grandfather. His love of family and friends was known to all and served as a beacon for others to admire and follow. As a successful businessman he followed in his Dad’s footsteps for which he was so proud.

Larry knew the Lord and we know he was welcomed to his final place with love and open arms. While he will be deeply missed, we were honored to call him a friend.
