My Dad and I were so sorry to see that Larry had past away. He was such a help to me in getting my Dad's Hall of Fame biography complete. Besides our e-mails I spoke to Larry on the phone and we had a great conversation. My Dad and I both have fond memories of Larry when he was competing as well. Our thoughts are with you all in your loss of a really great guy.
Hello there Marti!!! I just saw this...I had no idea that Dear Larry had passed away. I am sure it's been very difficult for you and your family. Wow, 47 years of marriage, that's almost a record!! God Bless All of you!!!! Marianne Grosskopf Parks Simi Valley, CA
Dear Martha & Family, Sorry to hear of the passing of Larry. I'm glad you had 47 years together. It was so good to see you at the 50th Reunion. God Bless You All, Carol Hill Bowen
Our sympathies and prayers go to the Banner family. May The Lord Bless you and keep you safe.
Getting to know Larry and play golf with him was one of the great gifts in life that I have received. His gentle personality, strength of character, and quiet humility belied his great accomplishments.
To the Banner family,especially Martha, Eric and Brett,
I only knew Larry as a friend and reading about his life was so moving! He was such an accomplished man in so many fields. But in addition to all those accomplishments, he was so proud and devoted to his wife, sons, and grandchildren.
Please accept our sympathy for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Richard and Adriana Mooney
