Joan and your extended family. I am so sorry to hear of Larry’s passing. He was a great friend and always good for a laugh. On the rare opportunities that I was able to see he we happily reminisced about fun times from years ago. He always brought up the night we all wen to a dance at Armar ballroom in Cedar Rapids and the having fun with Toe and Larry F. Those memories will stick forever. May you and your family rejoice in his great life and he fond memories which you will always have. Peace and Joy to you all. David Humphrey
I'm so sad to hear of Larry's passing. He was such a great guy. I'll never forget his voice calling through the door early, early in the morning at Mom and Dad's asking if the coffee pot was on. He is such a part of memories of "home" in North English and will be greatly missed. God bless. Tina Claypool Mihulka
