Larry was my cousin. He was best man at our wedding 70 years ago. Our sympathy goes out to the family.

My condolences to the family Larry was a great friend and enjoyed our get togethers and playing cards with him. I will miss him.

Debbie Meyer

I had the pleasure of getting to know your father at Colonial Columns. I worked in the office there and he would come visit me while I was working. He always had a smile on his face and a positive attitude. He always talked very highly of his sons and I told him he was lucky that his boys cared so much. He would smile and tell me they got that from their mother. I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Barbara Jean Turner

My deepest sympathies to you and your family Dan.
