Man, that cat could play! And you could tell he loved what he was doing!
Rest In Peace, jam on with those who went before you.
He touched many with his music,

I remember Larry from when he worked at Kress 5&10, I also remember how much I loved listening to him play the organ at all the dances in the 60's. There was no one nicer or friendlier in the music business in Yuma in those days. I was in Yuma a couple of years ago and Jeannette and I went to the Landing to listen to The Big Boss Band, and Larry happened to be there. We spent some time talking about the good old days, I don't know if he remembered me, but I sure remember him. Rest in peace Larry, you touched a lot of people.
