Larry was a member of the Mt. Union UMC and he was affiliated with the Chestnut Ridge Independent Fellowship Church. After high school he worked in Rockville, MD with his brother Bill. He later drove truck for his Uncle Paul, Ed Oldham, Pete Miller and Dave Steele. He was self-employed with his own truck for 30 years before retiring.

The last several years took a toll on his health, but his strong faith in God and his love for his family kept him going. His grandsons made him so proud and he loved seeing them grow. Larry’s heart was big and he never met any strangers. He will be deeply missed by his earthly family, but is now resting peacefully in God’s arms.
