Larry was a hard worker. And whether it was working on the farm or managing his storage units, he stayed busy. Larry never lost his love of cars, and particularly classic autos. He greatly enjoyed attending car shows and Swap Meets, as he was a collector’s collector! Larry was free spirit, and walked every day to his own beat. He will be dearly missed!
