Sorry to hear of Larry's passing. We were friends from Bishop Luers and St. Francis. He was a very kind and funny man. He will be missed.

To Larry's family, My sincere sympathy on your loss; prayers for you and your extended family in the days ahead. Larry was in school with me at Sacred Heart grade school as well as Bishop Luers high school, and as kids, we would hang out together now and then. I can still picture his mom and even his grandparents. In those days, we all lived in the same general area of the parish and kids rode their bikes everywhere with no worries; just fun. Life was good.
