Larry has long been retired from his lustrous career as a chemist and lab technician in the electroplating industry.
Among many hobbies and interests of Larry’s was playing, teaching and constructing classical guitars. He enjoyed his time with his golf buddies playing the game he loved. He most enjoyed, over all, cheering on his grandchildren in their respective sports. Larry drove miles and rarely missed a game.
