    Lois and family, My thoughts are with you ❤.
    Larry was great to work with at Shubat. He had a wonderful laugh , was a thoughtful listener in any conversation.
    I remember him listening to the song: “will you remember my name? When I see you in heaven…”

    Larry was such a great guy – so good to Mallory and Drake when they were growing up and running around in John and RoseAnn’s (and his) yard and garage. Hugs to the family.

    I just read the obit for Larry, Sandy and I would like to send our condolences. We have great memories of KL and it’s tough to see the old timers go that helped make them. He was a great neighbor and fun to work with when I was at Shubat’s. Our prayers are with you.
