Transcription provided by Find A Grave contributor Dorothy J. Shadwell Wheatley - Thank you.

Lary was the son of Clarence and Joy Tuttle Humes. He was survived by his twin brother Gary Humes and sister currently living in Denver area. Lary had just returned (not sure on the timing - but seemed like it was less than a year) from his service in the Vietnam War.

Found this on the internet re: inscription "Vietnam BSM - OLC on his headstone.

A BSM is the Bronze Star Medal..the OLC is an Oak Leaf Cluster...indicating a second or subsequent award. It means he was awarded the BSM twice.
