Larry was always doing some home improvement project, some small and some big, and always was willing to help others out with their projects. He enjoyed camping, sailing, and especially woodworking, making many benches, as well as cabinetry and fine furniture pieces and a life size set of Lincoln Logs for his grandson. He always enjoyed spending time with family and friends.
