I met Larry one day when I happened to pick a stool next to him at the Whaling Bar, so many years ago. After a few minutes of conversation I thought to myself, “Oh oh, maybe I should sit over there” but soon I warmed to his strange, quirky, and gentle personality.

Over the years it was always a treat to engage with him, as he was a great storyteller. He had me laughing and in tears several times with his stories from work at UCSD. He was well read and turned me on to several books I enjoyed. He also never let me forget that I should “NEVER have sold that '32 Ford 5-window coupe.” But Larry, that was a hundred years ago, I was nineteen! “Doesn't matter! Arrrrgg!”

Toward the end, it warmed my heart to see Larry come into The Spot where he had a few drinks and at 6 PM, when Mario the bartender got off – Dear sweet Mario - would take his friend, our friend, home for the night.

“I'll see you tomorrow,” I would imagine Mario said.

And so Larry, I say, with glass held high – “I'll see you tomorrow.”

God bless,

Bruce K.

Many years ago I was working at Alfonso's and Larry was a regular. I always enjoyed Larry's take on things and his dry wit. He was a gentle man who was a pleasure to know.. I am sorry that the announcement for his memorial that was to take place on the 24th came out in the La Jolla Light on the 25th, sorry to have missed it.

I knew Larry for the last 15 years and always enjoyed our conversatons at The Spot, or La Valencia. We had a common interest in music and would spend time pondering the harmonic complexities of songs like Billy Strayhorn's "Lush Life". I always found him in an amusing mood with tales of his "bizzare" work life at UCSD. I'll never forget the night he broke his ankle while attempting to exit Alfonso's. I watched him head toward the door only to miss it by about two feet. Like a good Marine, he showed no signs of pain. By the time the medecs showed up and had him loaded on the gurney, word had traveled all over Prospect we had a "man down!" I was amazed how many people came from all the local establishments to show their concern for one of their friends (and steady customer!). Larry was there being loaded into the ambulance, calmly waving to us all, "it's only a scratch".
I'll miss ya Uncle Larry...Arrgh!

You could set your watch by Larry entering one of his favorite places on Prospect St. daily. He became one of my favorite people in spite of our different feelings and discussions concerning the La Jolla seals. He will be missed by me and his many friends. Peace, my friend.
