I was saddened to hear about Larry passing away recently. We worked together at Manbeck Construction Co. for many years and he was one of my favorite employees. Larry was a very competent person both as a plumbing and electric person, but then even more valuable as a foreman on all sorts of projects.
His uncle Bill came to me and said Larry was looking for work and asked if I would be interested in hiring him. I didn't think twice about his working with us and was very lucky he stayed for us as long as he did. Not only was he great to work with but he was just the kind of person you wanted to be around. I'm so sorry he's not around but feel fortunate to have spent as much time with him as I did.
I'm sending a donation to "Doctors Without Borders" as mentioned in the obituary. Again, I'm sorry for everyones loss.
