He drove truck for many years until he was forced to retire due to health issues. Larry had a love for music, bowling, baseball, football and fishing. He was a lifelong dedicated fan of the New York Yankees and the Cleveland Browns. He lived most of his life in Rochester, NY but in 1998, Larry and his son moved to Norwood where he gained even more friends and family. He often enjoyed hanging at Hometown Café visiting with family, friends and waiting for his grandkids to show up for ice cream. Larry was a man with a huge heart and will be greatly missed by many.
