  6. I’m so sorry to learn of Larry’s death and wish to extend sincere sympathy. Larry and I went to school together from kindergarten on, until we graduated from high school. A few years ago, when he was in Spring Green to see Harley and Mary and at Harley’s urging, he stopped here at my office to say hi. It was wonderful to see him after so many years and to catch up a bit on each other’s lives. The picture of him with his motorcycle looks just like the Larry I remember. God bless all of you.

  7. Sharon, so very sorry to hear about Larry. You both were great neighbors in Quail Creek. Prayers for you and the family.

  8. To the family of Larry,
    My thoughts, prayers and condolences are with you for the loss of Larry.
    As a manufactured housing dealer, I never handled the Skyline products but whenever Larry & I would meet at any business function, we seemed to be most happy to set and visit for quite a lengthy time.
    He was truly on of my favorite industry friends.
    I will miss my friend Larry.

  13. I met Larry over 30 years St Skyline homes where he was a salesman and I worked on the line. Many years later he was Sales Manager at Skyline and hired me as a salesperson. I worked with Larry for several years and always enjoyed his motorcycle stories. He was passionate about his Harley. Ride on Larry.
