Larry, I’m so saddened by this, I will never forget the memories me and Jon had at your house when we came over as kids on the weekends. You took us on motorcycle rides even when Nanda was scared for us, you taught us how to drive a manual in that damn yugo, the float trips and the cheese, mustard and lettuce sandwiches were the best! And of course the fast windy roads going to Hurley. Wish I would have had the chance to say goodbye and thank you for all the great memories that I’ll never forget. Rest In Peace. Love Jeff

We all touch so many lives and Larry meant more to so many people than he could have realize. He was a wonderful husband, teacher, friend, uncle and brother. His loss is too hard to put into words. We will more than miss him but treasure our time with him. My heart is broken for you Nanda. We will all pray for you to find some level of comfort because there is no peace for this.

Nanda, I was shocked to hear of Larry's passing. I know that it's been many years since I've seen both of you but I always thought he was such a good guy. I will pray for comfort and knowing that he is at peace with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
