Larry was a great guy, I always enjoyed running into him. He was on the golf league when I first started golfing. It was my birthday, so he set up a hot pink ball on a tee for me on 17, because he was in the group ahead of me. It was the first par I ever got in my life! He will be missed. Our condolences to your family.
