  • I was deeply saddened to hear of Larry’s passing. I worked with Larry for several year’s at Verizon & I could always count on him to cover the bases & keep things running smoothly.

    On my trips to Kennewick, Larry & Linda made me feel at home with invitations to dinner & interesting conversations. Their invitation to join them for Cool Desert Nights is still one of my best memories.

    Larry was an interesting & talented person that will be missed by many.

  • Our thoughts and prayers are with you through this trying and shocking time. Although Larry had been our neighbor for more than a year we had only just got to know him just before he passed away. He had such a good sense of humor and thoughts of helping other people. We are just so sorry we did not get to know him sooner.

  • I first met Larry and his wife Linda at the Baptist Church in Kennewick. A man of manners.What a Guy! Larry was always working at something with all his talents. He was never short on his time for you when you stopped by.I recall when he and Linda first moved into their home in Benton City. Seemed like a couple months and everything that would make a home complete he was busy at it. I remember one time when I went to breakfast with Carol and Riley where they met often on Saturday mornings and Larry’s kidding remarks that made everyone smile. His aura was calming.I’m thankful for the short time I knew Larry. I share in your loss.

  • We were so shocked to hear the news about Larry. He was our neighbor across the street when he and Linda lived in Kennewick. He was the greatest neighbor and friend anyone could ask for. He was always so willing to help with anything and he always had a smile and hug whenever we saw him. He was always talking to the boys and they both looked up to him. Anytime the garage door was open, Jason would run over there seeing what project he was in the middle of. His presence will be greatly missed by everyone that had the pleasure of knowing him. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this difficult time.

  • If you ever met Larry you would deem him an unforgettable guy, larger than life and full of it. I haven’t seen him since he would come with the Bean clan to the potlucks and Easter breakfasts at Bethany Church in West Richland but he is certainly someone I will remember. He was quite the character and always teasing somebody. I am so sorry for your loss Sondra and Dawn. May God bless you and give you love and peace at this difficult time.
