Larry proudly served in the US Army. He was also a Fire Fighter and EMT, before becoming a contractor, which he retired from in 2017.
Larry liked to live life on the edge, always looking for new adventures to share with his family. He was an avid fisherman, survivalist and camper.

He was always willing to lend a helping hand and was always willing to help anyone in need.
