Larry was a phenomenal human being. He had so much love in his heart for everyone around him. His greatest pride and joy were his children, grandkids and his fishing poles. If you couldn’t find him, he was probably out fishing or tinkering in his shed. Larry will be missed by many and never forgotten.
