Lori and Jodi and husband Dennis Young (deceased) went to high school with your dad/grandfather and were on the football team together. Dennis considered your dad a good friend during those years in school. Prayers to you and your family

I worked with Larry at the Chillicothe VA Medical Center. I loved his sense of humor and dedication to the veterans. He is a great guy and will be sorely missed. I love this picture and this is how I will always remember him.
