I am so shocked and saddened to hear of Larrys' passing.
He was such a kind, thoughtful and loving man. Someone who gave me so many incredible and wonderful memories that I will hold on to forever.
He was so talented in many, many ways; an Artist, a Chef ( the Best Buffalo Wings I ever tasted!), a Musician, a Recording Engineer, a Golfer (sometimes!!!) or just the funny 'Napkin Man!' and much more...
We had sad times and amazing times but LP, you brought laughter and love to my life and I shall never forget you.
Thinking of you now with Sabin by your side. XXXX

Larry Swist: This was the boy... who, despite juvenile diabetes, loved to play basesball, saying, "I was just a big kid who could hit home runs... " and he continued to hit home runs for the rest of his life. This was the teenager... who built speakers and amplfiers in his garage. This was the man... who, instead of watching the Sabres on TV, taught himself to skate as an adult so he could skate with his son Chris - Larry never could sit still! Whether he was making Carol, Linda, and Judy sound like heavenly angels instead of just the Big Wheelie backup singers, or putting the punch on top of the rich tambre of Mangione's live horn section, or making Marcia's violin sound like a strad... he was always searching for, and very often achieving, sublime heights. People often ask how he accomplished the incredible things he did with sound and recording; but the answer is obvious: Because he's Larry Swist - that's what he does and that's who he is. His lesson for us: Use the gifts you have been given, and use them every day, like he did. I can't say "Rest In Peace" - because he never did want to rest. Lawrence Pi, you are buring bright in our memories, today and always. Thanks for all you gave us.

Dear Jessie, I never knew Larry but only his reputation in the business. Coincidentally and unfortunately I came across this obituary as I was researching Larry's name to contact him to see if he had advice or even an opportunity to mentor someone like myself. I too have designed and built a Recording Studio and was recently deciding whether or not to pursue this passion. Larry's passing has inspired me to do so and I just wanted to share that with you. From what I have heard from mutual acquaintances and the words of this Guest Book he sounded like an outstanding man. My deepest condolences to you and family.
