Larry, Bob Jones, Tom Brennon, Pete Peterson, Larry Schafer, Terry Farnsworth and I were the good guys gang, kind of the opposite on the Black Shirt Gang. We spread good will among all we encountered. I moved to Indiana during our junior year. I lost touch with every one. Some of us reunited at recent reunions but never did catch up with Larry. He was a great friend.

Rest well my friend, rest well.

My sympathy to Larry's family.  He was such a decent guy that I am sure he leaves a huge void with family and friends.  Blessings and comfort to you all.

 It's been awhile since I've run into Larry and his wife at several breakfast places here in KC. But we would always visit and I'd remind him if we had a reunion coming up, and how we'd love to have them come. My prayers goes with the family as I know first hand the struggle it is. Is that 7 or 8 that have passed since 2020? I believe all turned 78! 

Russ, when I saw the Good Gang post I had so many memories myself, and Tom always had fun memories of each of you. Thank goodness you weren't the " black shirt gang". Hadn't heard that expression in a long long time. 

Looking forward to May and please all stay healthy ,get our vaccines  & get back to living!
