I have known Larry for almost 31 years from being a friend to his sons Edward and Kenny…He was always kind to me and would stop and chat whenever I would see him or would beep and wave if we passed each other on the road. He was a hard working man who always stayed busy. He even did some work on my house. No matter how busy he was, he would always make time if I needed something done. I will miss him and wish the family my deepest condolences..I
