So sad to see Larry has passed away. My memories take me back, remembering Larry working at Square D, next door to our Real Estate office. He was a kind and nice person. Cheryl, my loving thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

My prayers and thoughts with love to you and your family.
Sorry to hear of Larry's passing. Knew him for many years through work and of course golf and CHAC . Praying for the family.
Larry was a great guy to work with! He taught me so much about electrical equipment when I had no clue what I was doing! The business advice & life advice he gave me in my younger years was very much appreciated. A gentle soul he was and I appreciate him!
Just found out about the loss of this sweet (sometimes pain) of a man. He was absolutely the best “boss”, friend, mentor, I was fortunate enough to have. We spent many working years together & I watched the boys grow up. Cheryl, we extend our sympathy on this tragic loss & please know that all of you will be in our thoughts in prayers. Love Joe & Rita
