Dear Sue & Girls,

I have so many memories of Larry, especially from when he and Bob worked together roofing; Bob's flying hammer, the rip-off jobs where they were so dirty they were barely recognizable, and many more, My love to you all and Jehovah be with you.

It’s so rare that you meet someone who is just so liked by everyone he meets. That was Larry, always with a smile, and good natured sense of humor. Always busy doing something to his house, but mostly would always talk about his love for his wife Sue, and his three wonderful daughters. He had a love for the Bible and would always share the comfort he found in It’s pages to anyone who would listen. We are so proud to have had him as a friend, and we will always think of him with love and a smile! Our deepest sympathy goes out to his family and to all who loved him. He had a sure hope for the future, until then we will certainly miss him. Love Doug and Linda Greene

I am so very sorry to hear of Larry’s passing. Even though I have not seen him or family in many, many years, I have fond memories of visiting often at Aunt Clara’s & Uncle Harry’s Farm. Prayers for family during this time.

My wife and I worshipped with Larry and his wife and daughter at the Stonington Kingdom Hall. Larry was an honest, hard working man who loved his God and family very much. We all will miss him very much.
