I am so sad to hear this news. Over the years Larry and I became friends as I visited his Antique shop and he re-did his listing in my Antiquing We Go Brochure that he advertised in. We talked a lot about his love of his dog Blu and his business and I would take pictures of him each year with the new brochure. This last year was my favorite pictures he had such a huge smile on his face which is how I will always remember him because he loved what he did and he would always smile when he talked about his kids and his wife. I'm sending prayers to all of them. He will be greatly missed, God must have needed another Angel in Heaven.

I was fortunate enough to know Larry for 25+ years. We found our likes and hobbies were very similar and helped each other often over those years. We made a strong bonding through the H.O. slot car hobby and spent many hours and many miles together traveling to and from slot car shows. Larry enjoyed driving, so he and I traveled the country together chasing our hobby. Larry even helped me move and drove the big moving truck out here to WA for me. Our friendship never stopped, even though I was 2000 miles away. We spent many, many hours over those 25 years talking about those likes and hobbies we shared. I’ll miss #55 very much. Larry was one of the good guys.

I knew Larry as an acquaintance, but I knew three of his beautiful daughters. Who they are speaks volumes to who Larry is. I know he was loved and will be missed beyond measure, by Christy, Carrie and Chelsea and by his loving, adoring wife Sharon, as well as his extended family and friends.
