We. Returned from a summer trip to find that Larry had passed away. Larry and I were teammates for many years at University Park. We remained friends after he went to another school and through our retirement. We will miss his visits and calls.

I taught with Larry back in the late '70s and early '80's. He was a most kind and generous man. When we moved back to South Dakota, he would let my family stay in his house while we visited and he would stay at his parent's house. We kept in touch every Christmas and I saw Larry and some other friends from school when we were back to Melbourne around 7 years ago. He always maintained his sense of humor and dry wit. I looked forward to seeing him. I was so surprised to hear he had passed away. He will be missed.
