Our parents, Mel and Betty, were very fond of Larry, Susie and all of the Joseph family. Our sincere condolences. The memories of our times together will surely be a blessing

Dear Sharken Family, We were so sorry to hear about the passing of Larry. He and our Dad (James) were roommates until September. Both men are missed and praying they are able to catch up on some fishing together, something they both loved to do! Our prayers are with the Sharken family during this difficult time.
