Sorry for your lost Steve. I remember Larry, Bobbie, Margaret, and you and your parents because I lived behind y'all on DeWitt. I have so many memories about you and your family. I hope you remember me. Larry walk me back home when I was in the 2nd grade from the bus stop on Story and DeWitt when I got hit with a rock above the eye. I remember when he got in a fight with David Bambico from Irving High School across from MacArthur High. Best fist fight I have ever seen. I walk Larry home when the cops showed up. I worked for GTE for 31 years. My prayers go with you and your family.

Larry was one of those guys that you could never forget. When I was a maint. splicer in Lewisville, Tx Larry and I worked together. He was always willing to help you out anytime the need arose. He was fun to work with and knew the business. I learned a lot from him and a lot not to do also. A lot of people didn't know it but Larry was colored blind. I had to go behind him quite a few times to fix shorts on cable pairs. I considered him a good friend and a good fellow telephone man. Larry you will be greatly missed by all. Rest In Peace my friend.

So sorry to hear about your loss of Larry. I started working for Southwestern State's Telephone in 1957. I had the privilege of working alongside Bob Locke, who taught me a lot about the telephone industry. I remember Bob bringing Larry and Stephen to the office before their teenage years. Bob was so proud of Larry when went into the Army and also when he came home. Larry, you will be missed, rest on peace.
