Larry was on of us older folks who took pride and ownership of his store. Sale he cared not only about the business but also cared about his employees!
I always enjoyed getting a chance to talk with him whenever we would meet!
Not many tremendous gentlemen like Larry around these days.
Heartfelt condolences to his family. A man of his stature will be missed and the world is a bit worse off without him ❤️

Larry and I shared many evenings at the Pepperhill playground coaching T-Ball. Great fun and memories. Also we had some great fishing trips. You will be well remembered and missed. Love to Judy and all the family. Ronnie Wolfe
