    I learned of Larry’s passing via phone call from a dear friend. I was shocked. Larry, who I knew through other great friends of mine since high school, was a just a superb gentleman. He was extremely personable and was very generous with his time, treasure and talent. My lasting memory of him was from a couple years ago when I was visiting St. Louis (I live in California now). He offered to take my youngest son shooting at his gun club the Sunday morning of that weekend. It was so nice of him to do that. I will miss his laugh and his zest for life. To his wife Mary, also my dear friend, and his daughters and son, may the Lord be with you during this difficult time. God Bless!

    My condolences to the Niemann family. He was a very nice man and thankful I got to know him some through the Elks.

    I never walked away from a meeting with Larry, or on a call, without a smile on my face. He had an incredible gift to make every person he touched feel happy. In this crazy world we now find ourselves in, we could use Larry’s gift more than ever. Knew the guy for over 50 years. He was a true blessing in my life. I will miss him very much. Larry was truly a great man, and he will never be forgotten. If I know Larry, with his charm and mastery of persuasion, he’ll get an exemption from the “No Smoking Policy” in heaven. I can honestly see him watching over us……and, of course, puffing on a big ol’ cigar.

    So sad when such a fine husband and father leaves this world so soon. May the love of Christ be with Mary and the children on Easter and throughout the year.
