I was so saddened to hear of Larry's passing. I always enjoyed churching with he and Karan and the kids and listening to him lead praise and worship. What an awesome loving spirit. I know he will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Our love and condolences to Karan and the family.

So blessed for knowing you two, and having the two of you praying over us many times❤❤ Larry was such a great man of God but so gentle and soft spoken at that same time. I know he is in the best place now and praising God, but he will surely be missed❤❤
Praying for your family,

I first met Larry and his family many years ago. My mom and dad and I started attending a church back in 1986-87 and that’s when we first met. Larry was a good hearted man who always had a smile on his face and a hug to give. Larry was always involved in some musical production. Then, a number of years later God brought us all back together again in another church where Larry was a worship leader. Loved hearing him lead the praise and worship. Prayers to the family, love, and God’s peace upon you all. Love you all!

I met Larry on April 1, 1994 the night I got saved. It was Good Friday and my friend invited me to church. Larry was in the play. He told me later that during the altar call he picked me out of the people and prayed for me. I will never forget that night. A few months later he baptized me in water. He was an inspiration to to me. I was and am blessed to have known him. Was also in a Champion of Honor group with him and Pastor Dave.

I met Larry and his wife when they visited Jennifer, Josh, Xavier and Max who live next door to Nancy and I. He was always smiling with kind words and a great sense of humor. He was very proud of his family and cherished his time with them. It was always good to see his car and know he was here visiting and we were blessed to have known him. We will miss him but know he is in heaven and we will see him again. May he rest in peace and the family cherish all the good times that they enjoyed together.
