Larry will be remembered as an outgoing, patriotic, family man, full of stories which will live on with his family and friends. When Larry wasn’t sharing stories with his family, he could be found working on his house he built, spending time outside, riding his motorcycle with Ron Miller, snowmobiling, riding dirt bikes, attending the Indiana State Fair, watching wrestling at Northside Gym or visiting New Orleans, one of his favorite places. Larry also loved to play cards, especially Texas Hold’em and Euchre which he was the Indiana State Grand Champion in 1999.

When Larry wasn’t enjoying one of his other hobbies, he enjoyed seeing the country while delivering RVs across the country which he had done for over 20 years.
