Larry was Service and General Manager for Tarheel Industrial Equipment and RimTrax in Salisbury, NC, and transferred to Charleston, SC in 1989 with Construction Equipment Sales as General Manager. He had a long career with John Deere Heavy Construction Equipment Dealers and developed a successful home business, L&W Services, buying and selling new & salvage equipment internationally. He began his career as an auto mechanic, learning the trade from his father, who owned a successful auto repair business, GM's Auto Service, in Salisbury. He was owner of Larry's Motorama auto service station in Salisbury before he began his career with John Deere dealerships. His motto was "I can fix that" and he could fix anything! Larry was an active member of Riverbluff Church, where he served as a deacon and home small group leader. He was a loving father and enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, fishing, and fixing up old cars. Larry had a heart transplant in June 2001 and was blessed with another 13 years of life. He received a woman's heart and would proudly tell everyone along with a few jokes. He and his wife Wynette were married June 21, 2003 surrounded by their children, family, and friends. We are especially grateful to the staff of DCI Archdale, who took great care of him in Dialysis 3 days a week and the staff of Life Care Center of Charleston while in rehab. We are also thankful to the heart transplant staff at MUSC who followed Larry for those 13 years and to the fifth floor Ashley River Tower staff who took such wonderful care of him during many hospital stays.
