To all my cousins and Larry's family, Larry and I didn't see each other often but on the occasions once or twice a year we did, we always had lots of laughs. George & I still have the puzzle he put together and gave to us all framed and perfect for hanging. My visit to Germany in Sept. 2007 will always have a special place in my heart. Larry encouraged me to make the trip to visit with him for two weeks. He actually took the entire two weeks off from work and took me on a whirl wind tour of Germany. I had an opportunity to meet many of his special German friends. We all partied together. Larry took me to the October Fest in Munich. I had my first beer and first bratwurst with Larry. Guess you could say, "he encouraged me to drink just a little". With heavy hearts we also toured Dachau and both shed tears together. Larry you served our country well!! I am proud to call you "Cous" just as you always, called me. May you rest in peace Cous!! All my love to my Fillmore cousins. Diane (& George) Briggs

Larry, just want to thank you for your service. I so enjoyed hearing from my mother about the times you came to Freeport and you would always stop in and visit with her. I know it wasn't always the apple pie she would give you. Ha Ha. On behalf
of the Durgin family may you rest in peace. You will be hard to be replaced.

My very best to your family..

Steve and Blanche Durgin

I was fortunate enough to work with Larry for a few years at NAS Brunswick and knew him as a team player and a very resourceful, dedicated and hard-working IT professional who never missed an opportunity to learn and innovate. He was a critical player when NASB was building its fiber optic network and associated IT infrastructure, and took great pride in achieving great things at minimal cost to the government. I'm very sorry to hear of his passing - may he rest in peace.
