Sadly another classmate has passed.  I remember Larry as a handsome young guy and great smile.  He was always very cheerful.  So sorry for this loss.

I was sorry to see this post today of the death of Larry.  I remember him being nice looking, pleasant and loving cars.  Relatives of mine lived for years in Stuart, Florida and I have good memories of visits to that city.  My sympathy to Larry's family and friends and pray that God will comfort all of you.

I rememer Larry well from living on Bennetts Run Road when we went to the one room school - with six rows and six grades with Mrs. Tannerhill as our teacher.  His mother and mine were best friends.  I can't rememer his mother's nick name but do remember Larry and the family well.  We lived there until the sixth grade when we moved to the new North Sewickley Elementary School.  My thoughts and prayers go to his family - even though it has been some time since his passing - he will be remembered.
