I am so sorry that Uncle Larry has passed. This is very heart breaking and I send my condolence to his family! Larry is not my Uncle but in my heart he is. He was a wonderful person. He means the world to me. He has been there for me since birth! He was the best big Uncle any one could ask for! His sickness happened so fast, its breath taking! I wish the best for his mother and sister! (ELizabeth)

I’m sad to learn of Larry’s passing at such a young age. I’m sad too because he only recently received certification for HVAC work, a trade he had looked forward to getting into for a long time. I didn’t know much about Larry’s past. We had lunch a few times together, talked occasionally during his regular work breaks, and shared some of the after hours social activities sometimes held at Providence Place. He always impressed me as an upfront guy, a man I would trust. I don’t know how he was in the past, but I was certainly impressed with how he is/was in the present. My sympathies go out to all his family and friends.
