Larry has been a long time friend of mine and my family for 54 years. He lived here in Churchland, moved to Waynesboro and Harrisonburg and returned back to Churchland around 1972. Larry spent many years employed with the W.T. Grant Company until they closed the doors. I remember Larry mostly with a reputation of being a company man and a very hard and dedicated worker. He was always very hospitable to my family, friends, and me.
