Hugs and prayers to his family and friends. Larry had such a big heart and loved his family dearly. He was my dads best friend and has always been considered family to us. I'll miss seeing his face downtown and his bear hugs. His mechanical abilities were top notch and it was fun to watch him tinker around. R.I.P. Wildman
