Larry’s passion was automobiles. He was one of the first to travel across the Golden Gate Bridge built in 1937. He was very mechanically inclined, and owned a used car dealership for many years.



Larry serviced in Panama, building a great highway. In 1943, Larry was drafted into WWII, where he bravely served our country for two years. Stationed overseas in the horrific and fierce battles of Europe, including the landing on Normandy Beach.



Returning back to SF, Larry met a widow Mildred (Price) Soberanes and her two children Eugene, and Charlene. They married and together had a daughter they named Georgette, who was an added addition to their happy home.



Larry went on to become a member of the SF Painters Union, and was employed by the SF Park and Recreation Department. He achieved the position of Painting Supervisor and retired at a late age.



Larry and Millie traveled extensively, making many lifetime friends all over the globe. Sadly their son Eugene passed away in 1992, Millie in 1998, and daughter Georgette in the year 2000. Gone but never forgotten!



A special thank you to Atria of Burlingame for taking care of our Larry in his final days. We will miss your twinkling blue eyes and smile Larry.



Respecting Larry’s wishes, there will be no public service. There will be a private celebration of life.
