Our condolences. Larry used to come through our drive thru and get something to eat and go down by the river. Krista, Ron and Staff at RONDAVOO.

My Sympathies go out to the Family of Larry. I remember him well when he worked at U.S.G. as a security Guard. He would make his rounds and stop and visit with me. It was always nice to hear his stories and to see his smiling face.
