Larry was a wonderful caring man and has touched so many lives. So many good memories at the bowling alley & playing poker at our condo many years ago! He will be greatly missed. Randy said the world has lost a wonderful human and that Larry was a huge influence on him during his younger adult years when they worked together. Much peace and love to your family during this difficult time ❤️

We wanted to extend our sympathy to the family at this time of your loss. Larry will leave a void in the hearts of many. He was one of the most welcoming men that I ever had the pleasure to meet.

You have been part of my life since I was a very young teen. I remember when you first starting dating my sister, Karen..and I would bombard you with "spoolies" from the top of the stairs every time you came through the door! I remember the wedding, looking back, you were both so incredibly young...but war was calling and you answered. Thank you for your service to our beautiful nation and for serving so honorably. May GOD provide comfort and peace to you now and throughout eternity.
I am sure you were met by all of those that have gone before and Lonnie was surely the first in line. Love, Teri

I was searching through my Facebook and found a post where I posted:

"Dancing to Gangnam Style with my manager Larry!" On Dec 2012.

This just tells you how he was as a person. Lovable and fun <3

I grew up at Avon North Hill Lanes. I was there as a child, a teen, and then as an employee. I worked alongside Larry for 6 years but knew him for much much longer. Working from with him and the bowling alley "family" was one of the best jobs and memories I will always hold dear. I always wish I could go back to those days and relive those moments. I loved Larry very much and miss him tremendously. May he rest in peace and watch over us all. I know he loved his life and his time with everyone. I miss him greatly.

Larry I have known you since I was 15. We were married young (before I graduated from high school). We’ve had good times (usually in a bowling alley) and we’ve had some trying times. You are the father of my children, a super grandfather and a very proud great grandfather. I will always miss you but this is the time now you can be with our son. I am sad but you won’t be hurting anymore. I love you Larry
