I have lots of "Larry" stories since Larry was our neighbor for 22 years. The best description of him is he was Neche's Walter Matthau from the Grumpy Old Men movies. Larry really was a kind hearted and caring man. I enjoyed my visits with him as he always had an interesting story to tell. He definitely kept an eye on the weather and rightfully so working construction for so many years! I will miss seeing his red truck going in and out of the driveway. He was very courageous and strong during his illness and I am glad he is no longer suffering. Our condolences to your family. Sue and Steve Swartz
