Worked with Larry and Linda at DOR. Sometimes he would get a little frustrated with us ladies for breaking our printers but he got them working again. Sorry to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you Linda.

I first met Larry in 1976 when I began working in the Computer Division. Enjoyed our 10 minute breaks every morning next door at Jay's cafe. Later on we bowled on the Revenue League and I drove Larry as he did not have a licence. After we got to his house (around midnight) he would put on a pot of coffee and we would hang out chatting for a while, smoking cigarettes! Needless to say I got little sleep on those nights. I will never forget the good times we enjoyed. .
Enjoyed Saturday morning golf with Larry and Dave Jenkins at Zebulon Country Club which usually turned out to be 36 holes.
RIP Larry
