    I send my deep felt condolences to you and the family. As you know, Larry was loved by all and friends to all, especially me. He was always willing to help out, lend a helpful hand and be there for others. He will be truly missed. Praying for peace and comfort during this time.

    Our friend Larry.
    Words can never express how much he will be missed. We’ve had such wonderful times together sharing life’s experiences along with those memories of their lives in Nebraska. To have such a kind hearted wonderful man as your neighbor was truly a blessing.
    We could never thank him enough for all his help over the years.
    We where just a couple of California Kids who really didn’t know much about living in the snow but with his help and guidance it made the transition so easy for us. His willingness to help us and others was one of his greatest strengths.
    He truly loved animals and his love and affection for Gus our Yorkshire terrier was so cute, to see a 6’5” man get down on the ground to play with a 14” tall dog was just the kind of man he was. Thoughtful and caring is who he was.
    Our world today is a much sober and empty place without you.
    We love you and will miss you dear friend.
    So rest now until our paths cross again.

    Love always
    Terry & Cheryl Gray

    Barb and Family,
    I was shocked to learn of Larry’s death.. Russ and I both had so much admiration for him. Larry was in our wedding and Russ was in your wedding and of course we graduated from HS together. I’m so sorry I didn’t know he was ill. You are so much in my thoughts and prayers.❤️🙏🏻 God Bless.
