Creator of Teaser the Mouse, Rudy the Rooster, Buzzy the Bear, Mean Old Cat, Snarfie R. Dog, Nasty Ole Thing and of course Hattie the Witch. These are just some of the over 300 characters Larry created during his 55 year career.

Also of note, his 1962 syndicated, critically acclaimed, 40 episode prime-time puppet series for adults the Contemporaries! A puppet TV series for adults, a full decade and a half before The Muppet Show.

During his 55-year career Larry racked up an estimated 6,319 hours of LIVE television. That's LIVE television. No tape, no edits in post, no re-dos, but LIVE!

And these 6,319 hours do not include his countless TV commercials, guest appearances and specials, including The Littlest Snowman,' Once Upon A Broomstick' and Granny Snowflakes Christmas Surprise' to name but only a few.

Then there was his community service and volunteer work. The best known of which were his years of work for Muscular Dystrophy Association of America, helping to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars and introducing Carnivals For Muscular Dystrophy to the Tri-State area. For years he also volunteered weekly at area MDAA children softball games and acted as chaperone for numerous regional and national trips for children living with MD.

I first saw Larry on TV when I was three and met him when I was four. He was my idol, my mentor and my friend. Apart from my mom and dad there is no one who was a bigger influence on my life. While life will never be the same without him, it has been so much richer and happier for having him been a part of it.

I thank him for all of the crazy, crazy times we shared and I will miss him for the rest of my days.

Larry was my first true love -- at OSU. I will always remember his charm, his fun-loving personality, and his wicked sense of humor. Go in peace, dear friend.
