Hello,
I had the honor to work with Larry at Sanofi on the hospital team for maybe a couple of years. The only time we ever met or saw each other was at company meetings. We had a really good diverse group of people that meshed naturally , but especially with Larry . Everyone loved him. He honestly made everyone feel like a friend . I would say I feel like I lost a friend , but thats not accurate . I have lost a friend . That is how real and sincere he was. He and I made each other laugh to tears at meetings and team dinners with our sideways looks at each other and grins at some of the company propaganda.. As you are aware he was a very special man . It takes a special person to be embraced by all types of people , but that is what Larry did and that is who he was .
I hope these words give the family some solace and help you smile when you think about him. Because that is what he did for us . He made us smile , laugh and love .God bless him and your family.

Respectfully,
Chris Spoto

My heart goes out to your entire family today and in the coming weeks. Larry was a friend, mentor, great listener and true gentleman.  We worked together on what he coined the "Dream Team" and had many great laughs over the years. He spoke often of his family, faith, love of music and, of course, the Gators. Larry and his infectious smile will be missed but never forgotten.

The only thing Larry ever failed at was trying to teach me how to play the bass guitar, but he tried! I will miss my friend after our workouts at the gym but I know he is with the lord. Love to his family that he dearly loved!

Had the pleasure of working with Larry. One of the best teammates you could ever ask for. One thing we would always end up doing at team meeting was over feed ourselves (The steak in KC was the best) then sit up late into the evening listening to, talking about, playing, and enjoying music. He would always have something new to share with me and I’d always try to have something new for him.

I loved Larry like a brother. He will be misse. My thoughts and prayers are with Leslie and the family.

Chandler and Leslie,
I am so sorry. Larry was such a joyful presence. Chandler, I am grateful that your friendship with Nick growing up allowed me to get to know your dad. And Leslie, I hurt for you. I am glad I got to see you at Vineville UMC when The Grapevine played. I had been praying for y'all when I first heard about Larry's illness, and I will continue to hold you both in prayer as you grieve.
Love, Ann Smith

My sincere condolences for all of the Lee family. I knew Larry from having the pleasure of listening to the Grapevine Band over the years. At one time, he also had insurance through the office where I work and he would come into the office with a smile on his face and great conversations. He was a larger than life man who never met a stranger. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

Larry and Leslie both were wonderful friends to my husband Thomas Carroll who died from cancer in July of 2019. I will never forget their kindness and support that was given to us during our struggles. Leslie if you ever need to talk I am here for you. Please call me. I didn't know Larry had past until I was told by a friend today who didn't even realize that I knew the both of you. God bless you and your family. I know you miss him more than words can describe. My home number is 478-960-1190.

We send our deepest sympathy to the family of Larry Lee.

We remember the time Larry stood up in the Covenant Sunday School Class at First Presbyterian Church. During the announcement time, he declared his deep love for Leslie, her family, and how thankful he was that she had ( finally) agreed to marry him.

We are so glad that they had some happy years together. He will be greatly missed by so many.

Larry was a good friend in high school. Everyone loved Larry and he made all of us feel part of the group. He was always friendly to everyone he met and he truly will be missed. May God hold the Lee family close during this difficult time and comfort them.
God bless you,
