Larry was employed at Torrington and Rayco in South Bend, and retired after several years of service at Honeywell in South Bend in 1996. Larry had previously worked with the Parks Department in South Bend, where he was instrumental in developing the duck ponds in the parks. He was known to family and friends as a man with a heart of gold, and showed his compassion and caring nature to those he knew, but the one thing Larry truly lived for was his daughter, Missy. He will be deeply missed by those who knew and loved him.
