He enlisted in the US Navy in 1955-1958, serving at sea overseas on the USS CAPERTON (DD650) for 2 years. While at port in New York, he met his future wife, Joanne (Trickler). Larry and Joanne were married on December 6th,1958 in Waterloo, New York. The couple relocated to Ohio, and had four children.

He was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed fishing, hunting, feeding the wildlife, and even raising raccoons. He could also be found watching football and Nascar, and spending time at his local VFW and American Legion.

Ron and I and Randy were very saddened at the passing of Larry. He was a great guy and we really enjoyed his company when we saw him. We'll always remember the perch used to bring us home when he was fishing. Sadly we are not going to be able to make it to the legion on Saturday as we are having our Christmas that day at 1 o'clock. Our love goes out to Joanne and family. Larry will be missed. Ron , Rosaean & Randy TaylorI
