Larry was one hell f the best men I have ever known. Larry was more than just a friend to me, he was a brother to me. You were always there for me no matter what. I could count on you to do anything for me or my family. I will remember all the good times we had, all the laughs we had, and all the talks we shared. You will always be missed my friend. For now its not good bye, its simply I will see you later. Rest In Peace my brother, I love you.

The first time I met you, you were so excited to do your favorite activities with a city girl and I will admit I had so much fun. The first time Josh and I ever tried hunting, rode on the back of your bike, rode on the atv and you helped us get out of my comfort zone. Rest In Peace Larry

I'm so sorry to read about Larry. I met him when I worked at Foothills Industries. He drove a van for DSS before I left in 2018. He was always a very nice guy to talk to. Praying for you all.

Larry, I am so glad our relationship grew over the years. I loved being able to go out and ride the motorcycles together. There were a few rides that I wanted to get to ride with you but unfortunately you were taken too soon. I will definitely go for those rides with you in my heart . You might not have won the battle but I can definitely say you kicked some *** while trying. We all love you, make sure you are ready to ride when we meet again. - Nico
