In his retirement, Larry enjoyed playing golf, reading, and watching sports. He recently became an avid walker, enjoying daily walks around the city of White Plains. Larry was a devoted husband of 34 years and a wonderful father. He had a dry sense of humor and an infectious laugh. Larry celebrated and enjoyed each day, and he was particularly thrilled about the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series in 2016.
Larry is predeceased by his parents and his brother Todd. He is survived by his wife, Kathryn, his son Andrew, a son from a previous marriage, Matthew, as well as his brother Dan, sister-in-law Maggie, sister-in-law Patricia, and stepmother, Betty.
