I worked with Larry as an electrical apprentice in the late '70 at Westvaco in Covington. He had a tremendous work ethic and knowledge of the job. I learned a lot from him and thought a lot of him.

I didn't know Larry that well but what I saw and what I learned about him I liked, he was a good man and I wish I got to
know him better. May he rest in peace!

To Stephen, Rene &Family
Your Dad and I were first cousins. My Dad was Roscoe Bervie Humphries,brother to Edwin (Benny) Humphries. As the video shows he was a brave, fine man that you all were proud to call him Dad, Papa, Granddad. I also see he carried on the Humphries tradition of Love of God, Family and Country,and great pride in his work.
The loss is great but God will be there to comfort you. With sincere sympathy,
Mary Humphries Robinson

We were friends during grade school. I stayed overnight at his grandparents house several times. He was always the smartest kid in class. We drifted apart during high school. He was a very good ballplayer. I am so sorry for your loss.
God bless!

It was a true pleasure to work with you in brewing. You were always one step ahead and nothing ever slowed you down. You had a real passion for repairing whatever was wrong. You will be missed. Enjoy the other side and look down and smile on us every now and then. Much love to your family and friends who will miss you.
