I was saddened to hear the news of Larry's passing. We worked together for a few years and were in the credit industry for many years together. Larry was a wealth of knowledge, a true professional that knew his trade and what was important to his peers. I always enjoyed reading Larry's credit industry articles as I am sure many others did as well. I will remember Larry fondly. My deepest condolences to his family.

Dear Debbie and Family. So many great memories from our University of Massachusetts days together as floor mates on the 7th floor of our JFK dorm 1973-74. Talking sports, listening to music, playing cribbage, meals at the dining common. Larry was so funny and easygoing. As a Bostonian my one really great New York, Long Island Friend!! We kept in touch over 40 years!! Over the phone and in person always smiling and laughing about the Yankees and Red Sox. All my love and prayers to Debbie, Jenna, Katie, and Lindsey. As a Dad of two daughters. Family First. Love You. Rick Carbone UMASS class 1974

I’m so sorry for your loss of such a great husband and father. Although I never got to meet Larry, if even a fraction of what you’ve said about him is true he was a wonderful man. You have my deepest condolences. 😥💙😔

Sorry to hear about the passing of Larry.
I have not spoken to Larry since high school but I do remember him as a terrific teammate in both baseball and basketball. Larry was a team player and had an outstanding attitude. He was very supportive of all his teammates.
Not surprised he was so active in athletics.

RIP-Larry

Larry had a luminous sense of humor and great human warmth and empathy. His decency, generosity, kindness, and modesty touched many lives and left a legacy of high character for his family and friends. May memories of Larry, of his goodness, and of his love for his family and friends forever illuminate the paths of all whose lives he touched.

My sincerest condolences to the Debbie and her daughters and Larrys family. Words cannot describe a loss of a Husband, father, son . I never had the pleasure of meeting him in person but it appears that he enjoyed life and his family..

One of my earliest memories is from 1953 when Larry's brother called across the street to me and said "My mother just had a baby. I have a brother." We lived for sports, and Larry played daily with the older kids in the neighborhood. In recent years we spoke on the phone about his beloved Yankees, country music, politics, his wonderful family that he treasured so much, and health issues. I hope that heaven needs a good play-by-play announcer, because you are getting the best.
