I worked with Larry for several years at the Sheriff´s Dept. In my opinion, he was one of the most ethical, dependable and hardest working deputies in the Department. In addition to all of his favorable work and moral principles, he was a good practicing Christian. So sorry to hear of his passing, wishing him God´s blessings and peace.
