Larry will always be fondly remembered by his children, Michelle, Andrew, Stephen, Melanie, Matthew and Tina; adored Poppa to Taylor, Reese, Colin, Carmen, Lawrence Jr., and John; and precious great-Poppa to baby Elliott.
We are thankful for all the wonderful memories, close friendship and guidance that Larry has provided to all of us throughout his years. Larry loved life, he loved his family and friends and his life's imprint will forever be etched in our hearts.
