In addition to his immediate family Larry leaves his friends at Green Lodge of Manchester who shared nearly 15 years of his life, CHR of Manchester and all those involved in Bacon Academy Wrestling. He considered all of them as being a part of his family.
Larry spent the majority of his life in Manchester, a town he knew well and loved dearly. Larry was a warm soul who made many friends over the years. He practiced and shared his faith and love for others not only on the streets of Manchester, but also at St. Bridget's Church, St. James Church, Emmanuel Lutheran Church and Community Baptist Church.
Larry loved the Boston Red Sox and the LA Dodgers, UCONN basketball going back to the days of Wes Bialosuknia and Bacon Academy Wrestling. He was a fan of 60s music where he was able to recall just about every song and artist even the many one hit wonders of that period. He enjoyed a good pizza at Vic’s with family, his sister Linda's apple pie and a Popsicle or two during the day. Most importantly, he cherished time with the little ones in his family on the holidays and at family gatherings. He brought joy and smiles wherever he went.
Larry's love for life and his family, his outgoing personality, his positive attitude, his courage, his compassion and kindness towards others will be missed.
