I was a classmate of Larry's in the Class of 1956 at Northwestern High School.. I made a contribution to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital in Larry's memory from the Class.
We are so sorry for the death of Larry. He was a great guy and was so much fun in our class. We know he will be missed. We all enjoyed the free donuts over the years when we were in school!!!
