Larry - I have fond memories of us as kids, when we would hop on our bikes and ride on Wolfert Station and Union Roads for what seemed like hours, and still be home in time for dinner. Then as a teen, you would go hunting and trapping, and I never knew what you were going to bring home and put in the freezer - yuk! As an adult you worked hard, and always made sure there was a home for your family. You loved your wife and raised 2 awesome children who each have found unconditional love. You recently had to fight so hard my brother. I will always be grateful that we spoke the day before your passing, and our last words to each other were I Love You. You're with dad now and at peace. I am and always will be proud of you.

Larry, I will always remember listening to your 8 track tapes on your stereo when you weren't home. Thanks to my brothers I have a love of music spanning many decades, from Gerry's Jimi and Janis, to your 70's rock and then my own 80's through today. I was in McDonald's Saturday, the day after you joined Dad, and Peter Frampton came on and I wondered if you were paying me a visit. It feels unbalanced without you; there were four of us siblings, like two arms and two legs, and it's awkward now, like missing a limb would be. You were blessed to have two wonderful children who married amazing people, and a wife of almost 40 years that loved you unconditionally. I know you are at peace with Dad and we will all be together again one day.

Larry was more than my brother-in-law, he was my buddy and friend. My love of hunting/fishing and the outdoors was 100% sponsored by Larry. I am greatful for Him and the memory's I will carry with me for the rest of mylife, of all the cool stuff we did together.
