    I worked for Larry many years at Philips Roxane and after it changed to Boehringer Ingleheim. He was always a very good boss, patient, kind, considerate, never demanding,always appreciative of any extra you put forth. He was so intelligent. Answered your question before you could ask it. I am sad that he died so young. Know you will miss him terriabley. I always thought of him as a good friend,beside being the best supervisor I ever had. Saw his picture in the paper with his wife when they were married, he looked very happy. God Bless, Betty A Karr

  9. Rick Schwebel says:

    To family, My sincere condolences. There is no greater pain
    than the death of a loved one. Sometimes it seems almost more than a person can
    bear. Jehovah God helps us with this in His word. He promises us that He will
    put a stop to all sickness and death will be no more (REV 21;3.4) Jehovah also
    shows His love for us through the ransom sacrifice of His beloved son Jesus
    Christ. What a wonderful gift to be given ! Then the hope of seeing one’s loved
    ones again on this earth transformed in a paradise as it was Jehovah’s will when
    He created Adam & Eve . (Genesis 1:26,27; John 5: 28,29; Psalms
    37:11,22,29). If you have any questions or comments, please contact me at:

    We were so sorry to read of Larry’s death. We are in Florida and were unable to be with you at this time. Know that we are thinking of you and have wonderful memories of times shared as neighbors and friends throughout the years. Larry talked about how much he enjoyed traveling and exploring these last few years. He was a good and loving person.
    Love to you all –
