Larry’s coworkers said that Larry was always able to pull the stress out of the job with his humor and will be irreplaceable. Larry relished the time he had to spend with his grandchildren. Saturday morning pancake breakfasts and a fun filled weekend adventure were commonplace and looked forward to by his children and grandchildren.
