I worked with Larry for several years at the Las Vegas Hilton that became the LVH, then Westgate. We alway work well together and had a great time. Even though I have not seen him for years, I will miss his dry humor and friendly smile.

Larry was such a class act. We had so much fun back in the early 70’s when Bill worked for Larry at Circus Circus. He was such a kind, fun and generous individual. We grew to love him and are so grateful
we reconnected these past few years. What a blessing he was to so many.
