Larry was a considerate, gentle soul and we're saddened by his passing. Last year, we suffered major damage to furniture from a water disaster. Larry helped us with his fine work and wonderful, caring attitude. We talked about family and his trips to New Hampshire and how much that meant to him. We wish his family peace and strength in the coming days.

Lynne and Larry took me under their wing! Whenever we would be out, I remember Lynne stopping by the gas station near Acapesket Rd so she could get her "Larry Fix" –truly soul mates from day one, and two of the best people you could ever hope to meet. Even after all these years, I’m still honored to have been a friend and participate in their nuptials. Sending much love and many prayers for peace to Lynne and Matt. Larry was a gem,-and like all things rare - irreplaceable. My heart breaks for you both.

Donna Rickman of Wellfleet, MA wrote:

I only knew Larry through work - he was a talented furniture restoration guy. He could fix anything! He did work on my son's 18th century chair that looked like it was never touched at all, and it was stronger than ever. He was THAT good. He sent me much work over the few years that I knew him, and I always enjoyed chatting with him when we met for furniture exchange. I'll miss him; my trips off-Cape often included a stop at Larry's shop. My sincere condolences to his family and friends. May you find peace and comfort with your memories of him.

Larry was a great NCO, I served under him and John Pewtherer in the old 181st CSE before and during Operation Desert Shield/Storm. Thanks for all the great ARMY training and yearly N.G. annual trainings Larry.

Lynne of East Falmouth,MA wrote:

To the love of my life, I knew 2 weeks after we met that we would be together forever, I didn’t think forever would be so short. We used to laugh because all of your friends thought it would never last and we were the only ones that did last. Unfortunately your struggle was too much to overcome. I told you when you wanted to see the priest that it would be a short visit because you were such a great guy and that you did not have anything to confess, I think he was with you for less than 10 minutes. I told you I was always right. I will miss you but I know you are in God’s hands now and he will take care of you. Goodbye my love. I will think of you often.

Larry was one of the best. A good man, an excellent soldier. I served with Larry for many years in the old 181st Engr Co (CSE) We deployed together and with the grace of God, we returned together. He excelled as a leader and a friend. “It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God such men lived.” George S. Patton.
