Larry was an amazing man, full of life. A stern but loving father. From his crazy wild gambling days of youth to the last decade of retirement Larry was the caretaker of many. He always went above and beyond what was needed for those he loved. Larry loved fishing and working in the yard. He was quick witted and a savvy businessman. He touched many lives and is loved by numerous people. He will be greatly missed.
