Growing up, Larry was adventurous and bright. He attended Ann J Kellogg Elementary, Southwestern Junior High, and Battle Creek Central High School all located in Battle Creek.
Larry accepted Christ as a young man and faithfully attended church every Wednesday and Sunday in Charlotte, North Carolina where he resided. His compassion for others was genuine and he never missed an opportunity to share his faith. Larry had a quick wit and he touched the lives of many people with his unique laugh and trademark sense of humor. Family and friends never grew tired of his perfected Bill Cosby Jello-Pudding impersonation.
Larry faced challenges head-on and could do anything he put his mind to. He was the Lead Pipefitter at Superior Mechanical Systems Inc., in Charlotte, North Carolina. His coworkers described him as a hard worker and good man who loved the Lord. He enjoyed playing basketball with the fellas and spending time with family. Larry''s love of family and family pride was contagious and during his short time here he constantly demonstrated unconditional love.
