Not sure what to say?

Larry was a major inspiration to me in Lochburn Jr High School journalism/yearbook/newspaper classes back in the late '60's. The confidence he instilled from the onset carried me through a memorable career in the field. His influence was vital and instrumental. Larry was a favorite and among the best of the many, many amazing CPSD teachers of his day. I'll remember him as forever upbeat and cheerful while encouraging and challenging me. Just heard about his passing and am so sorry to have...

The best smile and the best laugh - Larry was one of the nicest people I ever met. Our thoughts are with your family and all those lucky enough to have known the man.

A wonderful friend from clear back to high school days at good old North Kitsap HS. A faithful MOB member and so very kind to all of us through out the years. So sorry not to have been in touch more. My prayers for his family and my love to them all!

So sorry for your loss.

He always encouraged me to be creative and expound upon my feelings in my writings
Years later my husband and I rehomed our beautiful old English / st Bernard puppy with his sister
I hadn't seen him in years but he will always be remembered as one of my favorite teachers and mentors in my life
