Larry and I traveled together in the mid-1970s. I met him in Daytona Beach Fl., convinced him to hit the road to Wyoming. We worked in Casper and in Yellowstone National Park. Larry bar tended in Gardiner Montana. We loved to play foosball together has a team, often at the Boot Hill Saloon in Daytona. Sometimes I called him "Keanawea". He'd wear a Mississippi Highway Patrol hat. He was a good drummer, had piercing eyes, had a great head of hair, and was a loyal friend when we traveled together in my blue Ford econoline van, called the 'Blue Moose'. God bless him

My condolences to the friends and family of Larry. I am saddened by the news that you are gone from this earth Larry. I have such great memories of you and your bigger than life personality. I had the honor of being your friend and sharing the stage with you from the 9th grade on past high school. We were in the band Uptown Sound. Larry was a natural performer. He excited and entertained every audience he sang to. He had an energy that was unrivaled. Larry was just as dynamic off the stage. He would light up every room he walked into. I have a special fondness for those years spent with Larry and I will never forget him. The world is a little darker today without Larry but heaven is a lot brighter with him.

"What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. We may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget"

RIP Larry! No more tests. Enjoy the afterlife and know that many people loved and respected you, and you touched many lives. I will sorely miss our time spent every Friday at our table at TJ's and the laughs, stories, and conversation we shared, and your joining us for Thanksgiving. You are a true friend

We say goodbye to you in this world - but make sure to save me a seat at your table up there! Love you my friend!

Larry was a very special and caring friend to his long time dear friend, Kathy Tremblay. She spoke so highly of Larry and told us what a hard worker and loyal friend he was. He will always hold a very special place in her heart and will be missed terribly. Rest easy, Larry. Thank you for your friendship with Kathy.
