Larry was a very fine man. Although we only knew him for a few years, we knew to be very generous and fun loving. Our condolences to his family. Rest in peace Mr. Dilorio.

Marisa, Thank you for letting Kelly and I know about your sweet dad. We always loved the DiIorio get togethers. There was so much love and laughter, not to mention delicious food! We are sending our love to you and the family at this most difficult time. Kelly and I just watched the beautiful video and we are remembering the love shared between Billie and Larry and all the family. We know he will be missed, but joyful that they are together again. Love always, Linda and Kelly Younger

Your dad known as Bubba to me would always visit my parents, Bob and Margaret Marshall when in League City. And in turn, our family would travel to Hempstead to visit the Diiorio's at least every few months. I was the flower girl in their wedding along with Deborah Regini. I still enjoy looking at those wedding photos.
Bubba was a very loving man and friend to the family. And he loved your mom very much. He will be greatly missed. I am so sorry for your loss.
