So sorry for your loss. My heart, thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Deeply sorry to learn of Larry's passing. My thoughts are with you, Carol, at this sad time. Sending you my heartfelt condolences. God bless.

Dear Carol,

My condolences to you and your family for the loss of such a great man and your dear soul mate. I know you made Larry's life better in many ways as he did for you. May you find solace in the memories you and Larry made together and the love you both had that will always continue on.

Larry was a true friend and my guide through the travails of a young lawyer. He leaves a wonderful legacy and will be missed. With deep love, Sherry Hutt and Guy Rouse.

Good guy with a big heart. I interviewed him several times over the years for stories and always found him to be a straight-shooter even when we disagreed with whatever. A loss to our community.


We are very sorry to hear that Larry passed away. Please accept our heartfelt condolences.

Lot's of memories of working with Larry at MCAO. Condolences to Carol.

During my time as the Maricopa County Attorney, I often relied upon Larry's counsel to guide me. He was an extraordinary prosecutor that exercised good judgement, excellent trial skills and integrity. Over the years my wife [Carol] and I became close friends with Larry and Carol. Many memories. Larry will be missed but remembered for the wonderful person that he was. Our prayers are with Carol and the family during this difficult time. Rick Romley

Mary and I treasure our memories of Larry.
We were blessed to join Carol at Larry's bedside to sing "Happy Birthday" to him as he turned 86...just days before he stepped into Eternity.
Blessings and Prayers of Comfort for Carol, the family, and all who loved Larry.
