In my memories of Larry , he's always smiling. He reminded me of my dad and Uncle Clint. They are usually smiling and joking around. He was always trying to sell a car (my Uncle Clint does now too) and my dad bought many a car from him. Cindy, our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.

RIP Larry. You have been an inspiration to many while you’ve walked our earth. Now it’s your turn to go stand next to our Heavenly Father at the pearly gates of heaven. And don’t forget to take your business cards with you. You never know where your next car deal will come around.
