I had the pleasure of working with Larry for several years. During that time he became a friend and colleague whom I respected and trusted. He lived his family and looked forward too his visits with them and was a devoted husband too his loving wife Nancy. He was a man of both humor and humanity. RIP

Was so glad to meet up with Keith Hamilton and attend Larry’s Visitation on Sunday. The funniest story shared was the one with Larry and my Dad Mert and Mert’s Chair. Hilarious!
