I just heard tragic news, Larry and I worked out at the collinsville ymca often in the afternoon, we talked and laughed about sports his business he never mentioned his position just said he worked at a bank in Rocky mt. lol. He had just mentioned his family that had came in for thanksgiving some from other states etc. He had just showed me a new "super set" exercise. I enjoyed him so much me and my son! I met his wife once outside of el ranchos' and saw her a few times at YMCA. Blessing to his family to his family and happy holidays I know he will still be with you all standing TALL and smiling!!!!!!!!!!! Sincerely Patrick

My heart goes out to the family. As a graduate of FC in 1976 Larry was a hero of mine as I had watched him play basketball with other friends like Mike Stuart and Kenny Joyce. I left the community to prepare for ministry and great to hear of how Larry used his life to make a difference in others. You and earth has lost a soul but heaven gained a light. Our prayers go out to you and God Bless and keep you in all His ways.
