Larry was born in Kenosha, WI on September 30, 1941. He has been a resident of Hammond since the early 1950s. He was a veteran of the US Navy(1959-63) and a past president(1975) of the Griffith chapter of the Izaak Walton League. At work he was known as "The Professor." In the 1980s, he dedicated a great deal of his time and energy to playing and coaching in the Hessville soccer club, where he made a positive and lasting impact that lives on in many today. He enjoyed reading, cooking, the outdoors, gardening, football Sundays with the family, and as Brenda would always say: "bringing all kinds of goofy stuff home from the flea market." Larry was a loving husband, a dutiful father, a kind grandfather, and a true friend who will be dearly
missed by all who knew him.
