I had the privilege of working with Larry at Alcoa for years. He was always happy, always smiling, and always considerate of others. And of course his laugh lit up a room. He was truly one of the good guys! Sending thoughts and prayers to his family.

Eugenia and Family,
Offering our sincerest condolences with the unexpected passing of Larry. We will always remember him offering a kind word of concern or that all consuming "infectious" laugh. It's been an honor to be part of your family and of the memories that have been made. "Big Larry" holds a place in our hearts reserved just for him. The rest is opened for you. May God bless you with comfort and peace during this difficult time.
