Larry grew up in Brookville and was a U.S. Army veteran. Following service to his country, Larry worked for the Brookville Borough where he retired as the maintenance supervisor after 29 years with the borough. Larry was active in the greater Brookville community. He was a member of the Jefferson County Long Gunners and the Roseville Independent Chapel. Larry was devoted to his church and very involved in building of the new church where he volunteered his skills as an electrician amongst his many other duties. But most of all, his passion was to see the new chapel’s kitchen completed and furnished with all of the required necessities. When not helping his church, Larry enjoyed hunting, fishing, reading, and “Jasper”, the “shared” family dog which he loved. However, his greatest joy was spending precious time with his family; especially, his grandchildren whom he adored and were the sparkle of his eye.
