Was sad to hear of Larry's passing. I had the honor of working many shifts with him at Temple FD. He was a dedicated and highly trained firefighter and was always willing to teach what he knew.
May God pour out His love, comfort and peace on his family and friends now and in the future.

Capt. Woellert, Thank you for all you taught this young firefighter. Rest easy, we have the watch.

Larry and Carole helped prepare the Heaven Bound celebration at our church. We made a big meal with beautiful decorations. Larry was always available to move things that were too heavy for the ladies. He and Carole arrived early and stayed until all the cleanup was done. We all enjoyed working together. We were doing the work God asked us to do!

Larry was truly one of God’s Angels. He was always right there with Carole when any one needed help or someone to talk to. He was God’s servant. We were so blessed to have him for a friend to join with him & Carole to worship the Lord at Anchor of Hope. Angels are rejoicing in Heaven. He was a friend to everyone.
