Rest in peace Bradford classmate and friend from way back when. You introduced me to someone who has been a very good and close friend since I was 15 yrs. old. I thank you for that and hope you also had many good and long time friends and a life fulfilled of your dreams.

So sorry reading about the passing of Larry. I met Larry if i remember corrrectly in elementary school, Bain. It had to be in any of the grades from kindergarten thru 4, as i moved from the Columbus Park neighborhood to the southside and finished elementary at Roosevelt. I think Larry went to McKinley, but he was a funny kid always up to something . So sad that another of our classmates leaves us too soon and young. RIP Larry

So sorry to hear about Larry's passing  Had no idea he had such a long and eventful career in the military. He will be sadly missed by his classmates and his country.

I did not know Larry in school, but I have to tell you this man had an awesome military career.  A career his family and friends and country should be very proud of.

A fellow vet,
