Messages & Condolences
Linda, I was so sorry to hear about Larry, I hope you find comfort in the good memories and great times that you shared together. The two of you always seemed so perfect for each other. My first memories of you two were at Paul and Judy’s, soooo long ago, many good times there. He was such fun with his great sense of humor and what a “master carpenter” he was. Sending wishes of love and happiness to you and your family as you continue life’s journey. Take care, Nancy

Larry was one of my favorite bank customers! I loved his dry humor and teasing – I will miss seeing him. My deepest sympathy goes out to all of his family.
Have known Larry for a long time and he was one of the best. My sympathy goes out to Linda and all of Larry’s extended family.
To family and friends,
This small note is to give you comfort in those difficult times. This comes from God’s word the Bible (2 Corinthians 1:3-4) 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those in any sort of tribulation through the comfort with which we ourselves are being comforted by God. . .And also
(Revelation 21:3-4) . . .With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples.
. . And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
I really hope that this will comfort you and may God wipe the tears from your eyes
I worked with Larry and hung around some with him a long time ago. Must have been in the early 70’s. I enjoyed being around him at work and not. We are sorry for the loss all of us will feel.
I’m so sorry for your loss!!!! I am a classmate of the class 1964. My brother Harold was a close friend and co worker of
Larry’s. Please extent my deepest sympathy to your family and to Sharon and Shelly.
I will always remember Larry’s smile and his willingness to help at the Project Grad fund raisers. My deepest sympathy to all his family.
