Lawrence & I were good friends in Grade school. I was very small & Lawrence was much bigger & tougher, so he was the BEST friend to have. I admired him very much. The world will miss him & so will I! John Biehl

I first met Larry in grade school.  Always interesting to talk to.   I remember the time he came to our 4th grade class with a huge "snake" skin that he rolled out through the aisle.  I think he had visited someone in Mexico and this was his "souvenir"....WOW.  Impressive.  Larry will be missed by many and only fondly remembered.  RIP Larry.

What a shame. Tremendous individual, great athlete, super Airborne member and very best of friends. 

First memory that came to mind when I heard of his passing was the time he and I missed the team bus to the Bellaire Relays track meet our senior year. We drove in his car and stopped on the way to pick up a six pack. I had my best throws of the year that meet and placed 2nd in the discus and 3rd in the shot put that day. My best meet of the track season.Larry placed in 2 events also. He and I ran together our Junior and Senior years, as allot of people will remember. We were inseparable. 

He will truly be missed by so many.

Rest in Peace my friend. I met Larry and Chuck Mooney for the first time on the football field. Larry loved to run behind Chucks blocks but one afternoon Moon was having a bad day and he missed blocking me and Larry and I hit head on, I knocked him backwards. He later told Moon and I that was the hardest hit he has ever took. We all were great friends. A good man served his Country well. We will miss ya Hoot.

Larry will be long remembered by his MHS59 friends and those of other classes. He was an outstanding athlete, active in track, basketball and four years as a valuable member of the Marietta Tiger's football team. He was a member of the "M" Association. On graduation from MHS he entered and served in the U.S. Army with the 82nd Airborne Division; he served for for 14 years. His close friends often called him "Hoot". He loved riding his "bike" and taking trips, sometimes long trips, on his motorcycle. Several years ago Bill Morse and I attended Larry's 65th birthday party at his home; he had just purchased a beautiful new three wheeled bike (cycle) with a back seat and a reasonably large storage compartment, a bit different than his usual two wheeler; it was burgandy and had all the equipment one would want. Many of us will remember having a beer with Larry, he had a lot of friends and we had a lot of fun. He will be missed by many. May he rest in peace.
