Larry was my brother-in-law. Sally and Larry had a special connection that only people true of hearts can have. The biggest thing I will always remember about Larry is he always had a happy outlook on life and was on the lookout for the next adventure. During the twenty years that I knew Larry, we had been on numerous Family cruises, and trips. Larry loved Pitsburg Steelers and specialty beers. He was a real guy with a big heart and our family with deep sorrow will always miss Larry and his amazing spirit. God Bess You Larry and May you rest in Peace.
