Larry went to high school in Marshall, Mich., and to Ferris State University in Michigan.

He was also involved in coffee importing. Larry loved to fly, hunt, dance and socialize. His most recent love was to fish for salmon at the “pump house.” He  cherished all his pets. He was such an amazing person, always positive, energetic, full of life, and wanting  to enjoy more of this beautiful life with his wife. He loved to engage in good conversations. He traveled to Costa Rica and Mexico, as well as many other places abroad. He used to get up early in the morning, grab a cup of coffee,  and sit on his swing to enjoy the beautiful view of the ocean, and mountains. He will be greatly missed.
