So sorry to hear about Larry. I worked with him at Shakespeare for many years. He loved playing the sax and seeing the enjoyment the band brought to others. I saw them in Oct on Main Street at October Feast, . I talked to him after they performed for a little bit, it was the last time I saw him. He’s now reunited with the love of his life and playing for her. He was a great friend and will be missed by so many. Cherish the many memories you have of him. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Our family offers our tribute to a great guy. Larry was a person you would just enjoy being around. There is no question that he certainly reveled in music and enjoyed entertaining others. Imagine the hours of pleasure and relaxation he gave others. We offer you our condolences and prayers. We hope the memories of him on that stage playing the sax will bring you comfort during this time of grief. Lee, Carol, Joseph, Amelia
