I went to school with Larry at St. Paul Lutheran and remember his playing basketball and being in our 8th grade play entitled "The Kid From The East" and being our 8th Grade Class Vice President. I am saddened to hear of his passing and praying for God's peace and comfort to his family.

I too remember Larry from junior high and high school. Larry was always great to be around either at school or extra curriculars. I am saddened to hear about his passing and will miss him greatly.
