Larry & I worked closely together at Vogel School. His abilities & decision making skills as my head custodian made my principal’s job much easier. My prayers go out to his family & friends.
Larry had a huge personality with a banter and laugh that would brighten anyone’s day! My sincere condolences to his family.

family and friends with projects. He was a dedicated member of the Griffin Community Ruritan Club,

could be found having breakfast with his son, Christopher, at Friendship Diner keeping his mind sharp by
sharing his wealth of woodworking knowledge.
