  1. LARRY WAS A VERY GOOD EMPLOYEE AND FRIEND.HE ALWAYS ASKED HOW OUR KIDS WERE DOING,AND SHOWED AN INTEREST IN THEM WHEN THEY WOULD STOP BY THE SHOP AND VISIT WITH HIM. THERE WAS NOT MUCH THAT LARRY COULDN’T DO WHEN IT CAME TO WORKING ON OUR EQUIPMENT.HE WAS NEVER SHORT THE TASK. I APPRECIATED LARRY FOR WHAT HE COULD DO AND LARRY APPRECIATED ME FOR WHAT I COULDN’T DO. HE COULD INFLATE THE TOUGHEST TIRE AND MAKE IT LOOK LIKE IT WAS NO BIG DEAL,AFTER I WAS OVER THERE CUSSIN AND SWEARIN AT NOT BEING ABLE TO GET THE TIRE INFLATED. HE WOULD SAY IF YOU INFLATE HALF AS MANY TIRES AS HE HAD I WOULD GET BETTER AT IT TOO.HE WAS RIGHT!!!!

  2. I was always amazed at how meticulous Larry was when he worked. He was like watching a well oiled machine. Larry was never afraid to offer a helping hand and taught me a few things while he was at it:) Larry was a good man and he will be missed!
