I was so sorry to hear of Larry's passing. A true gentleman and a friend to everyone. Brad Smith & I were reminiscing about when after many year, Bob and I decided to vacation down east and of course, there was a celebration lunch at the office for this. Larry had made me an oyster sucker, as he called it, from a toilet plunger! We had so many laughs about this and I still have it!!! Marg my thoughts are with you at this very sad time.
Such a Social guy

Too bad you had to end like this. Your charm was appreciated. All the best to your family. I worked with your son Rich in the 80's. You'll be missed.

Larry was our real estate agent. We met him in Bridgenorth at an open house one Sunday afternoon, and since we were from out of town, he showed us houses on and off for 3 years before we moved to Ennismore. He was a patient man, who always smelled lovely with his cologne when driving us from place to place. We were happy to know Larry and Marg after we moved up, and are sad to hear of his passing.
My condolences
