Larry was born April 22, 1953, in Nevada, Missouri.

He retired from the US Army after 26 years, during which time he served as a target acquisition specialist and senior rotary wing aviator.

In his spare time, he pretended to be a cattle rancher, and he enjoyed making people laugh by telling many bad jokes, none of which he could tell correctly.

He loved fully, cared deeply, yelled loudly, apologized quickly, and hugged warmly.

He hated computers and loved motorcycles.
