Next to his family, Larry had a passion for cars and was adamant about keeping them well maintained. He brought many cars back to life, including those of his children that were deemed a total loss! You had to wipe your feet before you were allowed to get into Larry’s car! Larry was known and loved by those who knew him for his outgoing personality and distinctive voice. He attended any car show he could and watched any TV show about fixing cars or Mecum Auto Auction. Larry was also an avid music lover and Classic Rock could always be heard on his garage “Boom Box” when he was outside tinkering with the cars or mowing the lawn. Larry worked in the banking industry for many years before working at Overlook Medical Center in the Central Sterile Department, retiring in 2018.
