Larry was a kind hearted, gentle, and patient man that loved unconditionally. He never had a mean word to say, but could get fired up talking about politics. He learned many of life’s lessons the hard way, but made sure to teach us all to take responsibility for our actions. He taught us how to pick ourselves up, and know that God is always with us, and will give us strength when we need it most. He was a great father, husband, brother, grandpa, and uncle. He was loyal and hardworking, he worked for Dynalectric for over 30 years as a General Foreman Electrician. Larry was not afraid of hard work or getting his hands dirty, though he preferred not to (he also had a great sense of humor). He was well respected and loved by all. He was always willing to teach, no matter what the situation. Whether it be about God, grilling, baking or electrical work, and he was a pretty good shot too.
We were blessed to learn many valuable lessons from Larry while he was on this earth. We are certain that he will continue to be with us and guide and protect us through tough and exciting times throughout the rest of our lives. He will be missed but never forgotten!
