Larry was an avid outdoorsman and was in the logging industry with his brother Robert, where they formed R&L Logging together. You could find Larry head to toe covered in grease at the garage or hometown with his boys who was always a phone call away. Larry’s pride and joy included his girl’s, grandchildren and Family. He was the kind of guy that would give his shirt off his back for anyone, he had the biggest heart. If Larry wasn’t at hometown or working under a truck, you could find him in his chair watching wresting or westerns, on warmer days you could find him in the garden or pushing his grandchildren on the tire swing. He will be missed by so many.
