My name is Walter Ellis. I served with Larry in the Sea Bees and played in a trio with him and Bob Langley while in Scotland. We did not stay in touch, but the memories are wonderful. He was a great guy.
To Larry's family. I am sorry for your loss. I served with your father in the Seabee's. I had the distinct pleasure of going on 2 separate details with Larry. Once at NCS Guam, and the other was Edzell Scotland. He was very talented. We would sit on the lawn in front of our barracks in Edzell and Larry, Bob & Wally would entertain us. Soon the whole group of barracks would show up and all would enjoy. He will be missed far and wide.

I want you to know that today's service for your Dad was so beautiful. So many people there who love him and you. He truly was a wonderful man and father. I am so very sorry that god needed his angel too soon for us. I too will miss my uncle Larry. Grief is the price we pay for love. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. With all our love.
Im so sorry for your loss of your dad, even though I didn't get to know him all that well, he made me laugh and he loved the music, such as I. The Jam sessions in Folsom a few years back. A great cook! Too young to go.
Tobey Stickler(Dan Sadler's friend). Too young to go.
To the family of my friend Lawrence whom I've had the pleasure of knowing and working with him the past 20+ years. I will miss him talking about "Bink", I'll miss his "Duranisms", and him carrying around those drum sticks which I'm sure he's using up in Heaven right now. My prayer for you all is that you have comfort knowing that Lawrence sowed love and compassion; therefore you'll reap the same. Rest in peace my friend.
