Not sure what to say?

Larry was the captain of my championship 8th grade recreation basketball team. I did my part by simply showing up and avoiding a forfeit, as befell other teams. Last game, Larry comes up to me and says, "You haven't scored a point all year, have you?". No, I hadn't. Mid-game, I was standing under the basket, and Larry passed me the ball. I missed. He fought off everyone, got the rebound, and passed it to me again. Missed. AGAIN he fought for the rebound, got it, passed it to...

Great guy...consumate gentleman...hell of an athlete ....RIP

I remember Larry from high school, being just as friendly as that wonderful smile in your photo of him. Deep sympathies.

I only knew Larry from Lyons Township, Class of 1969. He was a sportsman and everyone loved him. He was friendly to everybody and always had a smile of nice words to say. That's how I will always remember him. So sorry you lost him at this young age, I know how he will be missed.

Truly one of the nicest, kindest and most thoughtful young men of my youth at Lyons Township HS in LaGrange, IL. No one could say a bad word about him, his name always came up at reunions, especially by the women! I am so very sorry to hear of his untimely passing, a good person gone too soon.

So sorry to hear of Larry's passing. I was a business official for the Oshkosh School District so Larry and I were associates for a number of years. Larry was a wonderful person and I enjoyed working with him through WASBO. Sorry for your loss. God Bless....

Larry was a great mentor and friend to me. He was one of the first in the "business" to take me under his wing. I valued all the time I got to spend with him. We had some great evenings out at our conferences. Prayers and blessings to you girls. He will be missed so much. Maggie Gagnon- Director of Business Services, Freedom Area School District
