He was well known at the local McDonalds and Wendys whose employees were very kind. Larry’s last four years were spent living with brother Gary while fighting cancer.

He was an avid sports fan and enjoyed going to YSU sport events and he was a good athlete and basketballer as well. Larry went to basketball camp with Pistol Pete and Kareem Abdul Jabbar in junior HS. He loved to be with family and friends. His sense of humor, being a loving friend and brother and love of 60s music was a key and essential part of his life.

Larry was the focal point of the family and the whole family spent time with him in his last few months and recently celebrated his birthday together. Larry was loved by his neighbors and friends and was a welcome guest. Though he was not able to drive, Larry enjoyed riding his modified tractor around the yard.  He was a big brother to his wonderful sisters Brianne and Sharyn who adored him.
