I am so sorry to hear of Larry's passing. I was the foster Mom of one of the cats he adopted (Doug). Larry sent me such wonderful pictures of his kitties and it made me so happy that he gave them all such a loving home. He had a loving heart and will be missed.

As a fellow moderator on, I have immense respect and admiration for Larry. In a forum that can tend to be a disrespectful and condescending place, Larry always was humble, thoughtful, encouraging and supportive to the thousands of video editors around the world that he helped. He will be dearly missed. His loved ones are in my thoughts and prayers.

I will miss so many things about Larry, but at the top of the list was his love for animals. He emailed funny, touching and sad stories and he was passionate about his cats who were his children. He once brought me in an article from the Washington Post about a butterfly who followed a man home from work> The butterfly took a cab ride home with him and then greeted him at the front door every afternoon when he came home from work for several weeks. Larry was amazed and loved that story and wanted to share it. He would often come find me to help him rescue an injured animal and get it help. He had a great big heart and I will always feel the absence of him.

I rarely came across a thread on Avid Community Larry didn't contribute to. He unselfishly gave his time and patience to those of us that were in need of help. It is truly a sad day, and he will defiantly be missed.

A person who sets up and help others, sometimes strangers, without wanting anything in return. That is one of the best qualities a person can have. Larry was such a person.

Although I never met Larry, the warmth that we feel when someone like him is always there to help is a wonderful feeling. The joy and sadness of this age of electronic friendship. Fade to black!

RIP Larry.

Larry was a wise man; intelligent man often show off, but Larry never did. He was truly a teacher a friend and a compatriot in the land that is Avid.

Not exaggerating when I say that for every person who signs this guest book from the Avid Community, Larry knew and helped a hundred more. There is a selflessness he posessed we should all strive a little harder to achieve. He never tried to be the smartest guy in the room. (Although he often was.) Instead he tried to make the whole room smarter.

An amazing man with a tremendous spirit of servanthood, especially to the editing community. I'm sure he had no idea how far reaching his impact, or how many lives and careers he touched. With gratitude.

Larry was the nicest, kindest man I never met. Yet, I feel like I've known him all my life. We were truly blessed to have him in this world.

He was a warm heart, a brilliant mind, a ready smile. Always willing to go the extra effort in support of quality versus quantity. An inspiration really, to the rest of us. You will be greatly missed.

Our friend Larry left a mark and had an impact that's hard to describe. It's harder yet to imagine our little world without him. God Speed Larry.

As a colleague and friend, I can say Larry was simply a wonderful human being. His knowledge and compassion will sorely be missed. We all learned from Larry about technology, art and being a truly class person. Thank you Larry, for touching so many of us.

Larry helped people all over the world, and I thank him for all that he did for us on the Avid forums. He was the patriarch of the forums.

Larry was someone I only knew by helpful emails across the Atlantic to the uk, but his passing leaves a big hole

'Never underestimate the power of a simple act of kindness'.
Larry's 'job' as an Avid Forum Moderator was a personal crusade to help anyone and everyone with any problem, big or small. I don't think there's a single person who turned to the Avid forum who wasn't helped by Larry and will always remember him fondly and gratefully. A truly wonderful man who will be missed greatly.

Larry was a great guy, a dear friend, and a selfless Avid educator and mentor to all those he touched. He was one of the first to join the Avid Community Moderator team and was what every moderator aspires to be. Over the 8 years I have known him, I was lucky enough to call him a friend. I will miss your humor, your emails, your calls ( Hello Dahlink) and your intelligence. Rest in peace my friend and know that you will NEVER be forgotten - the Community will never be the same.
