Larry was a staunch Republican and loved the game of golf. His true love was his nine year old dog named Charlie. Charlie was his constant companion and enjoyed being with him every day. Charlie even joined Larry when he visited his friends at The Elusive Grape in DeLand. Larry loved Frank Sinatra and, like Sinatra, lived his life “His Way”.
