    I met Larry when I was 3-1/2 years old when we moved in across the street from his Grandparents. His Mom and mine were friends. We had so much fun growing up. We played baseball and football in our yard whenever he was in town. After High School we lost track of each other. We would see each other every once in a while at a gas station or in a bar having an adult beverage. When he came back and started to work at C&L Hardware we re-lived our adventures as kids. He was an awesome man. I will miss him. RIP Larry.

    Am unable to attend as we had to make an appointment in advance to see my Mom in tulsa along with other family. Mom is 94 and the Doctors don’t give her much time.
    I know Larry would understand.It was such a pleasure to have worked with Larry and will miss him. I felt blessed to work along side with him. I never had a person of his caliber to work for before. More of a brother. Miss him.

    Sandy, your Larry was always the best face to see anywhere, whether in C&L, passing by on the street or those rare times at a table in the Tasting Room. Always a smile and a sincere and enthusiastic interest in the lives of everyone around him. He is already missed. You and your family will remain in my thoughts and prayers. I am deeply sorry for your loss of your dear husband.
