Our heartfelt sympathy to Lillie and all the family. Larry was a truly kind, decent man and hard worker. My dad loved him and was so grateful that he shared his talents with Duane's Heating. May he rest in peace. You are in our prayers, Nicole, Trisha and Jesse Speed

Bauer family: So sorry to hear about Larry. I worked with him at Schneider Heating. I always e njoyed hearing his stories about family gatherings where he would do the barbeque cooking. I could tell how much he loved and appreciated his family. I always enjoyed working with him. We both enjoyed the TV shows 'The Rifleman and 'The Walton's' . He liked grandpa and I liked the dad . We both laughed about that. I will always remember the good times working with him. Rest in peace Larry and may God bless your family.
