    I first met Larry while working at Kruegers Super Value during my high school years in the mid 1970’s. He always had an upbeat and humorous attitude and made the work day a bit brighter with his words of wisdom and smile, he was a true “people person”.

    I can still see his wry smile as the more seasoned high school crew was setting up the newbie employee with some harmless mischievous prank, he would give us a quick glance, and his ever present “oh my” smirk, shake his head and walk away! Some people you never forget he was one of them. My best to the family.
