well, it's april 15 & i just now found out about larry's passing. he was a great one - even tho he was only a year older than me, he was sort of my hero, when we were in our teen years, playing music & baseball together. he played drums in my parents' band, the jean allen combo, and like his own family band, we played regularly at moberly's wayside inn, and all over central missouri. there were many treasured times with his family over in madison, and i had spoken w/larry some 6 months ago by phone. at that time, he seemed to feel great, telling me all about his new love, diane, and yakking about music & fishing. my heart goes out to everyone that knew larry and loved him, particularly to his sister kay and her wonderful husband, bill brooks.

Larry was my classmate, class of '63. We were all very good friends. Larry and I (mostly Larry) brought the house down with our on-stage kiss during our senior play. So sorry to hear of his passing, special thoughts and prayers to Kay and Bill. Kay was a music friend in high school and both were good friends to my parents through the years. So sorry for your loss.

My mom grew up with Larry and Beverly. Larry was a great athlete and musician. I always enjoyed the times I got to spend around their family. He will be missed but not forgotten.

In the 8th grade at Madison school Larry was my very first boyfriend. He and his parents had a band and played regularly at the Wayside Inn in Moberly. I was fortunate enough to have accompanied them on several occasions to hear them play. He will certainly be missed by all who knew him.

We were able to share many fun times with Larry and Beverly at our class of '65 reunions through the years. They were also neighbors of my Mom and Dad, Bob and Betty Mackler when Bryan was born. There were some hilarious "neighbor"stories that Beverly used to share! Our condolences to all the family. James and Barbara Mackler Robertson
