It breaks my heart to hear of Larry's passing. Larry and I were great friends since 1959 when we played in the high school band together. We both chose music as a hobby/career and Larry was so successful at it. He was such a talented man and a dear friend. I loved that man. He is gonna be missed by many many people. Rest in peace, my brother. I'll see you on the other side!!!!

Sincere sympathy is extended to the family. I was
able to listen to him perform twice at the Summer concerts at
the Newberry Opera House. His musical talents and singing
were exceptional.
