I've seen Larry enjoying life. Behind his drum set, keeping a solid beat, grooving with the other musicians, the slightest of smiles visible in his eyes, then a quick glance up at his wife as she sings. Right where he wants to be. In the middle of the music. All around him.

I've seen Larry enjoying life. Coaxing life gently, patiently into his tomato sauce, knowing just how long to simmer it, then make it wait in the garage so the seasoning could bloom and marry to the tomatoes, then back on the heat to finish in time for his hungry guests already savoring an Italian red in anticipation of the "sauce".

I've seen Larry enjoying life. Waggling into position over his next shot. Determined eye on the ball. Taking a whack, but with style, watching it fly, then starting to laugh as it turns off course, landing in the weeds. It didn't matter. We trudged ahead, gabbing and happy to be outdoors, with friends, enjoying life.

I've seen Larry enjoying life. Concentrating, eyeing the portions, mixing the perfect martini with the deft touch of an alchemist, hoping for gold. Then he appears, tray in hand to proudly present and humbly serve those he loves.

At the end of the evening, there was always a warm hand shake, a loving embrace and, finally, a big smooch on the cheek. That's just Larry, enjoying life, with those he loves.

I had the great honor of meeting "uncle" Larry back when I was just 16, he was an amazing man and always had a smile and great advice for anyone that was nearby. My heartfelt prayers are with his amazing family. Much love always,

On behalf of Camellia Symphony, I wish to express our sincerest sympathy. I remember Larry from when we both played in Camellia. Since I play viola, we didn't have many opportunities to enteract, but I do remember him as a very enjoyable person to be around. He went on to play elsewhere, but when I saw his photo, his warm smile was to be remembered.

My God bless you in your sorrow and may Perpetual Light shine upon him.

I just heard about Larry and am very sad to lose a great friend. My thoughts and prayers are with wife Robin and family. Larry taught for my Construction Management program at UC Davis Extension for many years. He held a love and passion for everything he did. What an amazing individual and friend. He will truly be missed.
