Larry honorably served his country in the U.S. Army. He was a member of the American Legion Post #357. Larry enjoyed country music; he and his wife went dancing every weekend.

I am a nurse at Memorial Hospital and took care of Larry several times. Larry was a wonderful man. He always had a warm smile on his face, even when you knew he was down in the dumps. He was always more worried about you than he was about himself. Taking care of Larry was always a pleasure and I'm honored to have known him. My condolences to his family and friends. Larry was most certainly a blessing to us all.
