This was such a shocking, terrible tragedy to hear of Larry's passing. During his long career in Law Enforcement and Public Safety he saved many lives and redirected many, many more onto a positive path. He was one of the kindest, wisest, most generous, jovial people that has ever lived. RIP Larry; you served this life well and always comported yourself with such honor and integrity. We are all better people for knowing you.
