Although Larry never married, he made numerous friends over the years, especially his childhood friend, Donald Criswell, fondly known as "Chrissy" to the family.

Larry will be greatly missed by his loving family. CHEERS & RIP BROTHER. Respecting Larry's wishes, no funeral service will be held, and private inurnment of his cremated remains will take place at St. John's Episcopal Church Cemetery, (Compass,) Gap, at the convenience of the family.

Oh Brother, so many memories of you! You helped to raise me along with my other siblings when Dad died when I was only 11 yrs old. You took your responsibilities seriously when Mom told you: "you are head of the household now". You were gruff on the outside but just an old "softie" on the inside. As you got older, you mellowed out and allowed yourself to show more emotion. I will miss you tremendously but my memories will sustain me. You are now walking pain free in spirit in God's gardens. Looking forward to seeing you again one day. RIP, Love Always, Sister Linda
