I am really very sad to hear that my dear friend Larry has passed away. We were the best of friends a long time ago after college and he was one of the best dancers (especially the shag) I have ever known. We were always going to shag competitions and we were pretty good & did come in first place several times. I have such fond memories of him. He loved his hair. When we would go somewhere, he would have to comb his hair at every stop sign or stop light. I would tell him if you keep that up, you are going to lose your hair. I remember our favorite movie was Animal House. I bet we watched it 12 or more times. It is still one of my favorites! Larry had a great & kind heart!!I moved away & did not see Larry for a long time. He did come by when my stepfather Ernie passed away in 2014. It was good to see him! He was still Larry!My thoughts & prayers go out to his family, his wife & son! Melanie WynnLexington, KY
