So sorry to hear about Larry. He was my fishing and bridge buddy. Larry helped me make doughnuts at the Flint City Market. My condolences, Harold Hall

I can still recall going night fly fishing with Ken and his Dad in my younger years. He really enjoyed the fine art of fly fishing and sharing his skills with others

Thank You! Larry met so much to me. I will never forget his wonderful smile and his sweet eyes. Words can not express my appreciation for bringing such a wonderful man into my life! I will miss and do miss him dearly. I think in Larry's words... "holy mackerel! I lived a good life!!"

Thank you! love, Mary Anne

Dear Ken and Lynne,
I was so sorry to hear about your dad's passing. I remember him with very fond memories. I can still hear him singing, "The old gray mare, she ain't what she used to be..." He was always such a kind, fun and happy person and a great neighbor, too! Blessings on the family, Mary Ruth Ruddock Adams

Dear K. & L.

"Saddened to hear about the 'loss' of your father & friend. We too are saddened as we remember what a GREAT job your mom & dad did with "raising (teaching, training, & telling you about the importance of Christian Values & Virtues in living your life with their example & skills. ( I still recall the importance of helping out your neighbors after you T Pd a tree in front of your home. [We were never certain whether YOU guys did it or your friends.] Your mom was out picking up the 'damages' on a Sunday A.M. May God reward you with a Joyful
reunion in Heaven!

Condolences and prayers to the family of Larry Abbey. My parents, Ed & Evelyn Wiles, thought very highly of Larry & Alice and my dad had great respect for Larry as a "road man". My father kept me entertained with tales of Larry's efforts to teach him bridge in their later years. He was a lovely man. God Bless.

So, So, sorry to hear about your dad. I know there will be a great void in your life without him.Although I only met him once or twice I am sure he was a very caring person if he could raise a daughter as loving as you. May The Lord comfort you and your family in the days ahead. Our prayers are with you.

To the Family of Larry Abbey:

I knew and worked very briefly with Larry in Maintenance in 1980 when I was training at the former Saginaw District Office on M-46. Larry was very approachable, friendly and helpful to me a new hire. I learned a lot in the short time I worked with him in the office and during his daily road inspections and garage tours. You have my deepest sympathy at this time.
