As Larry's account representative for Electrolux Major Appliances, Larry is one of my very dedicated accounts. Of the five years I've know and worked with Larry he always loved a good challenge and prided himself on 'seeing it' through. Although Heaven may be a perfect place, I'm sure he's already looking at re-engineering things!! You are greatly missed my Friend.

Dear Noel,

How shocked Andy and I were to learn of the news of Larry's passing yesterday. What a wonderful friend you both have been to us. Can not begin to talk about Larry's faithfulness to me personally while a Property Manager at Key 1.....it never waivered. He always was willing to go out of his way to be of help. He was trusted completely and loved by every one who met and knew him!
