I worked with Larry for 7 years and enjoyed every minute. He was a kind and generous man that always made me laugh. He will be missed and my condolences go out to his family and friends. I am truly sorry for your loss.

I worked with Larry for at the lab for over 20 years and behind his tough exterior was a sweet guy. He would light up when you would ask him about his daughter. One time at work my knee went out in the hallway and Larry found me leaning against a wall, he took one look at me and knew something was wrong. He stopped what he was doing and helped me out. I will always remember him as a great guy. I am so sorry for your loss, he was taken too soon.

Where should I start? There has been so many memories we’ve shared together from running calls together, to watching MASH, to conferences, and Field of Screams. I still remember the day I met you on Creek Hill Rd. Haz-Mat was called in to assist us on a spill of pesticide. You were the first Tech I met and the first thing you said, this freaking mask pulled my hair! The rest of the call you were more worried about the few strands of hair missing than the actual leak. I remember making a joke about it and you telling me I was a prime candidate for the Haz Mat team. It was meeting up with you “Leaping” Larry that brought me to the HM Team. This was the beginning of our friendship. I never knew there could possibly be someone else out there as twisted as I was. You went on to teach me the ropes at 2-9 and pushed me get my tech level. Then came the time you taught me how to drive 2-9-1. I remember we took it to my parent house and parked it in the driveway. You were insistent on climbing out with a Class A suit on to really freak my neighbors. I’m sure they all still have nightmares about that one. But we sure had a serious laugh at the dumb questions being asked as you walked in the house like that.
To this day I still talk about how you were “flirting” with a palm tree at our one conference. I thought for sure we were getting arrested that night. But instead everyone laughed at our shenanigans. I’m pretty sure when we rolled out on calls together the rest of the team began to wonder what we might pull off next.
Then there was the serious side. You came and sat with my mom and I as my dad recovered from heart surgery. You were always there for me when I needed a friend. You encouraged me and left an impression on this earth. Now, I’m sure your in heaven trying to pet every cat you can find.
Rest easy Leaping Larry! You will forever be missed!

QUICKLY REGARDING DONATIONS ~ For anyone wishing to do so … please WAIT until there is a link for the College Fund for Alyssa. Thank you

WOW LAR ~ look how many people are reaching out! Look how many lives you have touched over the years.

Firstly I want to say, I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART!!! We sure had an interesting journey together over the years that neither of us could ever have predicted. You brought so much fun and silliness to our lives. Yeah sure, you had a itty bitty temper and could be a little grumpy. But most all of us saw through that to the little purring kitty cat inside you. The part of you that cared for animals, the part that loved history and trivia, poker games and hanging out or just cruising around with no purpose at all. Just feeling free taking in the scenes, blasting your music and enjoying a smoke.

We will forever remember your love of astronomy. The night of your Heavenly journey the moon was a low crescent… as if you were smiling at us from Heaven, letting us know you made it. AND made it there FIRST! Then you probably stuck your tongue out at us! I could go on and on . . . but won’t. You were a good guy Lar, you worked hard, and you enjoyed your life.

Thank you for asking me to be your Wife and for making me a Mom!! We love you! We will always miss you!

Love you Pooh Bear ~ Trish (a.k.a. Wifey)
