Larry faithfully loved the Lord and was a very loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather.

Larry held a strong passion for photography and his hobbies included camping, hiking, flying remote control airplanes, reading books on the CIA and military covert operations, and learning about military aircraft and helicopters.

  • We will always remember Larry's kindness and welcoming smile. He always asked about how the boys were doing and spent time talking with us. His excitement as he spoke of the things he was involved with always left us uplifted. Please accept our condolences on his passing. We know he is at peace and rejoicing with our Heavenly Father in heaven!
