Jo Ann, I am so sorry to hear of Larry’s passing. I don’t know if you remember but many years ago we lived in a house you owned in Bellaire. He was always there if we needed him for any issues with the house. My son was just young but remembers Larry always making him laugh when he was there working on the house. There are not many kind, good hearted men left like him. We are very sorry for your loss. May God be with you in this hard time. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. Lisa Nickerson and son, Chad Nickerson
So sorry for your loss. Prayers to you and your family.
So sorry to hear of Bubs passing. Remember having a great time playing with trains w/him when I was a kid. Rest in peace cousin. Prayers for Lin, JoAnn and Kelly.
I am so sorry for your loss. Prayers with you all
JoAnn, Kelly, and Linda, hearing that Larry had passed away was sad. He will be greatly missed especially by you who were so close to him. We said a prayer for Larry and you in church yesterday, and Gigi and I will continue to pray for you during this difficult time. I wish we could do more. For me, being with Larry always seemed to turn into an unplanned misadventure. It was great. The stories are numerous. Hold the good memories in your hearts and know that whenever I heard him speak of you it was with love.
Larry will be truly missed. He was a great friend, classmate and Fraternity Brother. We were fortunate to have him come and visit us in October. He, Roberta and Tony Janeshek and I reminisced about our good times at Follansbee High School and West Virginia Tech. His story telling was humorous and his laughter contagious. We were hoping to get together again in the summer and sadly this will not happen. May the happy memories being you peace. Take care of yourselves. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Kelly and JoAnn, my family is sending our deepest condolences and are so very sorry to hear about Larry’s passing. He was like a second father to me as we were growing up and he will be greatly missed. We are sending many thoughts and prayers to your family
Love always, Michelle and John Markus, Ramona and Chris LaFollett
Joann and Kelly
We are truly sorry to hear about Larry. Our thoughts and pray will be with you
