When I lost my brother Larry, next to my dear wife I lost my best Mate. Sleep well dear brother…til your Savior comes to wake you!
Denise Stevling Bernard says
My dear sweet Larry will always hold such a special place in my heart. We were able to treat each other with the love and respect of close cousins even though we were 1600 miles apart. I always knew that he was well loved by three women were always there for him. Pam, Genie, and Chelsea, knew his value and treated him with kindness and love throughout his life. His grandchildren gave him immense joy and happiness. Larry had a good life because he was a good person that loved Jesus and was appreciative of His blessing. I will miss you, Larry!
Our collective hearts are heavy with sympathy. The family Larry leaves behind remains a special part of our thoughts and prayers. We your Zimbabwean family love you all dearly. Rest in Gentle Peace Larry.

I will never forget you, Larry. Bobby. Robby. You made me laugh and smile and you absolutely had Jim in stitches every time you two talked on the phone or were at family gatherings (which was often). You were a wonderful father, grandfather, brother, and brother-in-law and you will be missed dearly by all of us. Sleep peacefully in Christ until we meet again.
Roger Banner says
I fondly remember our teen years in the 1960’s when Larry and I, along with Jim, worked together at our dads’ service station. Since that time, Larry and I regrettably only saw each other, it seems, at funerals. Our conversations always seemed to eventually revolve around those early years. In many ways, the memories we shared were about the “best of times”.
Mary and I send our condolences and prayers to Larry’s family and friends. He will be missed.

Larry, my brother..so many wonderful memories! I still remember you entertaining me with your incredibly funny “Donald Duck” voice as one of my first memories. And being so mad at you when you I thought you ate all the best donuts on Sunday morning! Later, how you could never fathom my political views, but never stopped loving me!, and tried to them explain them to our mother! And you being there for our mother when I wasn’t. I know you are with her now! Miss you, big brother!….and I will take your advice to me..”No one is looking at you, or will look at you from this point forward..so EAT what you want!”
