I knew Larry only for a short time as a member of our camping club, and worked with him in the V. A.
As a brother- in- arms, I know him to have been true to his Christ, his Family, and his Country. He will be missed.

I cannot say enough about Larry. I am honored to have had him as a father-in-law. He always put others above himself. He was a role model and I always looked up to and admired him. He will be missed.

It has been a joy to to know Larry since I met him in the early nineties when my son married Kristi. His Christian faith was evident in his life as he followed the teachings of Jesus in his daily walk. I will miss him.

We extend our sympathy to Heidi and all of Larry's family. We only knew Larry six short years but during that we saw the man Larry was: love for the military and his country, love of his God and how he lived his faith, love of Heidi and all of his family, his dedicated service to others-his church, friends, veterans and so many more. Farewell, my brother, rest in peace, until we meet again. Pat.

Larry was an outstanding Cadet and Air Force Officer who was widely respected for his commitment and dedication. We will miss him but know he is home now.

Larry was a man that I looked up to and an American Hero. He bleed red, white, and blue. He truly loved his country and stood his ground in defending her for much of his life. He was a wise and honest man, but more than this he was a Christian. I am glad I had to the opportunity to work with him on some educational projects, such as Veteran's Day Programs at FISD, FISD Science Outdoor Lab, Reading to students at FISD, etc... What a great man and he will be truly missed, but we will be reunited in heaven one sweet day.
Heidi... I am here for you, if you need me. Just say the word and I will be there
