Larry was one of the first persons I got to know at GM Infact he hired me.
I then got to know Nancy and the family while I was at TAC.
Larry was special to just about everybody he met.
I’m taken back by our loss.

I am so sorry to hear this news and I offer heartfelt condolences to Larry’s family. Our paths crossed often during our GM days. Larry was systematic, thoughtful and a great teacher. A pleasure to deal with always. What I remember best as I think of him now, is his wonderful laugh! Rest in peace Larry.

Larry and I both attended Ryerson in Toronto and started at GM Canada at the same time. We became friends and over the years had many pleasant discussions. Larry was certainly very kind and capable and had a way of helping others when they had run out of ideas.
God bless you Larry and our best wishes to Nancy and family at this time.

Larry was a very knowledgeable person who was very generous with his time. He taught me many things. His infectious laugh will be well received in heaven.

I am so sorry for your loss. Larry was the best boss I ever had at G.M. Those hectic years in the early 80's when Larry's SWAT team was helping the dealers struggle through the introduction of computer controls on vehicles was exhilarating. Mike, Alan, George and I were going in every direction but Larry could calmly centre us. I will never forget him and his kind ways.
God Bless you Larry
