    Larry, was a dear friend and classmate. He was always crackling a joke and making sure everyone had a smile on their face. Since social media, Larry kept everyone laughing with several posts a day…where he found some of the things he printed are so beyond me. His skill of putting together jigsaw puzzles, was an art within itself. I will so miss this wonderful man. My heart is with Gina and his family. Long live this Red headed family

    We were classmates at Madison High, but we also were friends when we were about 12 years old. Larry loved to go to Madison Park and my bother coached softball there in the summer of 1963 and I knew Larry from that time forward. He was fun and lively, will be missed. I know he raised kids and grandkids and is very respected. Condolences to the family.

    Larry was my father-in-law, and there’s a lot of stories to tell. One of my favorites is when I was working on the downstairs bathroom of his house. I put a sign on the upstairs toilet that said “do not flush.” I disconnected the cast iron drain pipe so I could replace it with PVC and tie in the downstairs toilet. While I was doing this, Larry went in, moved my sign, lifted the lid and did his business (#1 only). And then he instinctively flushed. It rained in the house downstairs. I yelled something profane I’m sure, and then I could hear his distinctive cackle. It wasn’t funny then, but it sure as hell is now. The laughs we’ve had over the years. 😂

    So sorry to hear of Larry’s passing. We were classmates at Madison High. I remember Larry as always clowning around with others. I didn’t know he was a bass fisherman, if I had we would have dropped a line together. My heart and prayers go out to the family during this difficult adjustment period.

    I remember Larry from school as always being a cutup. It was never dull when he was around. We reconnected through Facebook and I learned what a wonderful person he had become. I loved the jokes he posted and the puzzles he worked. But what I loved most was when he would talk about his family, how proud he was of each of you and the joy you brought him. I hated that he was unable to come to our 50th class reunion, we were all looking forward to seeing him. I thank God that he was able to be with you as long as he was. What a precious gift. RIP friend.

    I was fortunate to work with Larry in the Cab Trim department at Peterbilt for over a decade. He wasn’t just cool…he was completely charming and had the best laugh. You could tell that he just enjoyed life and got a kick out of sharing that love of life with others, whether he was telling a story or a joke. I can still hear that booming southern accent saying “STEVIE!” when I would say hello to him at work. Beyond his accomplishments in life, he was an amazing and decent human being which is something we all should try to aspire to be. I’ll never forgot his kindness and his friendship. My love and sincere condolences to his family and friends.

    Larry used to swear by the watermelon chartreuse lizard for Bass fishing. Loved working with him. We had more fun at Peterbilt than one should have at work.
