Larry was a very quiet guy, and attended East (instead of West) because EHS had the Auto Tech program. His sister, Carol (WHS-64) set up a scholarship in Larry's name at SCT BOCES, in Painted Post. Sadly, she died young, and the scholarship ended. They were the only children. Ironically, Larry was good friends with Sgt Jon Paul Travis of EHS-65, who left our class early to join the Army, KIA in Vietnam January 1966.

 Larry was a sweet, quiet guy that used to confide in me and we shared teen angst and our little dramas through HS.  That still warms my heart.  It was hard to learn at out 10th reunion that he and others were no longer with us.  We thought we'd go on forever.  This past year, we took a trip to DC and did a "rubbing" of his name on "The Wall"... I will not forget him... and many others

God Bless you Larry, you were a good friend

Larry was o quiet guy around most, but a true friend, He bought what was one of the fast cars i Had and had fun with it until his enlistment, Was hoping that he could enjoy it more, but he found a better life with no worries. It is very tough to lose a good friend, but I wish him the the best where he is now. A fallen brother will never be forgotten and I saliute your name and my 2 buddies names that are on the wall, each time I visit it, God Bless
