    I knew Larry as a fellow soldier and then as family. He was a prince of a man that loved his whole family dearly. He will be missed by us and the world is a lesser place without him. RIP

    It is so hard for us to comprehend that Larry is no longer with us. He was truly a force of nature and not someone who we could think of leaving us early. We are greatly grieved at the loss. His joyful approach to living life to the fullest has influenced us to this day and we will treasure the fun times we had together.
    Our deepest love and sympathy,
    Garth and Rita Green
