Our thoughts and prayers are with Larry and his family. I always had a “short” joke for “Big” Larry and he always had a quick witty reply. Larry made a big impact on my life. He offered great advise and always had time for you. He was patient, kind, hard working, honest, and could carve a smile out of you at will. Larry will be missed but left us with lasting memories.

Cathy and family,

A bright light went out in Port Lavaca with Larry's passing. Such a wonderful friend and neighbor. He was always a bundle of energy and always had a smile on his face. We have been thinking about all of the good times we shared in the past and can't believe he is gone. Our prayers go out to you and your family.

Larry was the happiest and kindest man I’ve ever known. He always had the biggest smile on his face and pep in his step. That twinkle in his eye made me believe, as a kid, that he knew the secrets of life and happiness. Happy days and fond memories.

Prayers for the family. He will be missed.

Larry was one of the sweetest people I’ve known! I remember when he was a mailman he would come inside my grandma’s house for a quick cup of coffee with something sweet (Kolaches) and then he was off. Love hearing him play his guitar and sing with Cathy. Y’all are an amazing example of true love. So sorry to the entire Robison family! 💚🍇🍇💚
