    My heart is full of sadness since hearing of Larry’s passing. He was so vibrant and passionate about elections and helping all of us. He will be missed by the ES&S family in many ways. My heart goes out to Lisa and his sons. Larry left us too early but his memory will last forever at ES&S because of the positive difference he made in so many lives-customers and coworker alike.

    I am so sorry for your loss. As one of the many who treasured Larry at ES&S, he will be greatly missed. Everyone counted on him for his superb support. He was a pillar of strength in our company, and I’m sure was the same for his family. Praying for you all. May God give you all the strength you need.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. As an ES&S customer I never met Larry in person, but his guidance and help over the phone before, on and after Election Day was invaluable. I feel like a there is a hole in the team that will never quite be filled. Larry will be greatly missed.

    Dear Kennell family:
    Please know that all of you will be in my thoughts and prayers as you try to get through this most difficult time in your life. Larry was a man who left his mark on this world with his sense of humor, compassion, patience and knowledge of his profession. I am so honored to have had the pleasure of knowing him and working with him in the election world. From Michigan, he was always my “go to guy” and will be missed by many across the entire country.

    It is rare to meet an individual who expects you to give “excellence” with each client, but who never fails to demonstrate themselves. Larry was one of them.
    I met Larry for the first time years ago in Omaha, He had only been with ES&S a few yrs and I was a first time contractor coming in for training. Over the years Larry and I became friends and I had such respect for him and his work ethic. I never forgot to give and maintain excellence with each client because of him.
    On those occasions when Larry would chat about family life it was with pride he discussed his boys (even when they were young). I am sincerely sorry for your family’s loss.

    My sincere condolences.
    I can’t imagine the sorrow for losing such a great man, during this holy times.
    I have had a chance to work closely with Larry recently at ES&S.
    He was much appreciated and recognized by his coworkers, it was an honor for me to cross path with such a great soul!
    Requiescat in pace.

    My condolences to Larry’s family. I was totally shocked to hear about his passing. I worked with Larry for many, many years supporting our client base. He was dedicated, conscientious and meticulous in everything he did. You could not ask for a better person to work with or for a customer to handle their issue. He will be truly missed but will always be remembered. He has set the standard for what it takes to support a customer.
