A man of good character and friend to all. I distinctly recall his laugh, bad jokes and tremendous sense of humor. Smiling and laughing 99% of the time and he was the oldest of a great clan. Excellent Scout Leader.

Larry had a zest for life. Whether singing in the church choir or working at Husker games, he gave it his all and was always genuinely interested in those around him. Rest in peace, faithful servant!
