My condolences at Larry's passing. I got to know Larry in the late 60s and early 70s through my dad's buisness in Caribou. Larry had an incredible work ethic and produced quality work always. I'll always remember his sense of humor, ready smile, hearty laugh and the glint he got in his eye whenever something struck him as funny. But most of all I remember him as a warm and funny man. Larry is one of those individuals who had a very positive and indelible influence on my younger years. Ii will always have fond memories of him.
