    Back for Millikin Homecoming and just found out the sad news. I will miss my old friend and duck hunting partner. Will never forget you and the great times we shared. You’re with your old yellow lab Cody again!

  2. Farewell to a close McArthur High School friend. Spent many days at the family home on Dunham. Worked on the Morris Minor with him and his Dad and sailing at the club on the lake.

  3. So sorry for your loss Joyce! I will really miss seeing Bear make his trips around the block with Huck. Sweet a Sweet person!!

  4. Long time friend at MacArthur HS. Bowled with him for a couple years back in the day, also played with him in the high school jazz band. Larry was a pretty good tenor sax man. Gonna miss him.

  5. I am so sorry to hear of Bears passing. He was in our family for many years and we all loved him. He was very entertaining and just an all-around neat guy. We’ll miss you, Bear! Go fly with the angels, HONEY. Love, Aunt Pat

    I went from kindergarten on all the way thru school with Larrie. He grew up across the street from my husband’s uncle Bud and aunt Neene too. He was such a crazy fun person that always met you with a smile. My deepest condolences to all those who loved him.
