Larry was Born April 11, 1956 in Pueblo CO. He died on November 23, 2019 in Phoenix AZ with family by his side. He was raised Episcopalian and later in life enjoyed membership in the Evangelical Church. He was a loving kind soul who was everybody’s friend and would do anything for a friend or family. He loved all animals with a special spot in his heart for dogs. He spent his early life in the Arcadia area, attending Kaibab Grade School and Scottsdale High School, Scottsdale Community College as well as various Community Colleges in San Diego. He loved the outdoors, skiing and baseball and cheering for the San Diego Padres, although his brother made a Diamondbacks fan out of him as well. May he be remembered as a good man as he touched so many lives with his smile and joyous spirit. He is survived by his mother Nancy and brother Lyle. There will be a church service and a Celebration of Life in January TBD.
