Larry was my coworker, confidant and mentor in work AND in many, many aspects of my personal life. Even though we had 20 years between us, I always felt Larry was closer than a brother to me than a friend. Larry had an amazing wealth of knowledge that he gladly shared with all those that cared to learn. Learning, teaching and passing down knowledge is a focus in life now that I now follow as well....learned from the way Larry lived his life. I\'ll miss you Larry, and we will cross paths again.

Dad was a loving, generous, kind man. He was always happy to help with whatever problem i had. With dad, i felt safe and confident. If i had a question, problem, or concern i knew i could go to him. Some people in life bring out the best in you, and dad did that for me. I will miss him a lot. I loved my dad and look forward to seeing him in the resurrection.

Over the past 30 + years, Larry has been my co-worker, my mentor and my business partner, but most of all he has been my friend. He always was able to say the right thing at the right time. Even though he is no longer with us, he will always be with us in hearts, memories and the stories we tell. My prayers are with Marsha, Jenny, Derrick, Tyler and Gavin who he loved all dearly. \\\'m not going to say goodbye because you do\\\'t say goodbye to a friend, you say \"until we meet again\".
