Larry was an introvert, but he was a sweet, gentle caring person that will be deeply missed by those that knew and loved him.

Cristy, a niece he helped raise states that Larry always helped her with her homework, and helped her become one of the best basketball players on her school team. He was very smart and caring, and she will cherish the 13 years of amazing memories she has.

Rest in Heaven, Larry.
