I only knew Larry for about five years but we soon became friends. Larry was a one-of-a-kind type of guy. He loved life and enjoyed living and helping others with any handyman task that would arise. I believe Larry is/was one of the best Christians I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He will be missed…! Goodbye my friend

Larry was a good friend and coworker. We liked to razz one another at work. Very recently our friend Phyllis and I would go clean his house every other week. We so enjoyed visiting with him so much. I'll remember him being fill of joy and happy, since his last test came back ok and looking forward to going to his farm to in Minnesota and fixing it up. That's how I will remember him full of joy ! My condolences to his daughters and family!
