Anyone who knows Larry knows Larry loved to fish, most especially with Patricia and his grandchildren, teaching them the joy of fishing. Larry had many fishing buddies too, whom he always outfished! You go, Larry!!
Larry and Patricia enjoyed many adventures and travels. Their most memorable trips were to Italy and especially Israel; walking the roads their Lord walked on and sailing the Sea of Galilee.
