To the family of Larry: I was so saddened to read that Larry has passed away. My first memory of Larry and his brother Jerry and parents were when they lived in Meckling, SD. In later years, Larry did some carpentry work at our home in lower Vermillion. The last time I saw Larry was at a rummage sale at the senior center in Vermillion. He was trying on some cowboy boots and was happy about his good find. My husband and I had a nice visit with him. Larry was a very nice person and will be missed by all who knew him. May your memories bring you some comfort during your grief journey. You are in my thoughts. Angie (Gray) Ladner

Dear Lea and family,
I was so saddened to hear of Larry's passing. We had many great years of bowling together, first with Brewers Melons and then Edwards Construction. My thoughts are with you all. My sincerest condolences.
With love,
Dennis Tomhave
