    Uncle Larry was my favorite uncle. My mom gave me his middle name and am very proud of it even though it was a source of kidding from some. I also named my son the same thing. It has been too many years since I’ve been able to visit him. The above picture is the way I’ll always remember him. When we were young (many years ago) I remember going to Grandma and Paw Paw’s to visit and we would have a great time. He was kind, funny and a joy to be around. He was a kind soul. He will live forever in my mind and i will miss him. Judy, I’m sure that his strength will help you and the rest of the family ge through this tough time and his spirit will live on in your lives as strong as ever. Love you all Harvey & Febe English

    Dear Judy and Family,
    Please accept my sincerest condolences for the lost of Larry. I served with Larry onboard the USS Bennington. We were part of the No. Three Fireroom gang. I have fond memories of those days with Larry. He was a true shipmate and and some one whom you could trust to be with you. I know that his Love Ones will miss him, his shipmates will also miss him. As he now rest in the arms of our Holy Father we must keep him in our memory and our hearts.
