    Larry was a cool guy and last I saw him was at the Governor’s Mansion back when Bill Clinton was Governor of Arkansas….we all stood around the Grand Piano at the Governor’s Mansion singing along with our Governor…He was full of life and always had a smile. I remember his Parent’s Grocery called Lands at our elementary school, Jones Elementary….they had great food and was close to our homes and right across from Jones School. They had those giant Dill Pickles in the big fat jars!! My Sympathies and Prayers to his family and loved ones. (Former Classmate 1964) Sammye Jo Coleman Auman

    I was very fortunate to know Larry through his son Anthony, one of my best friends. He even welcomed me into his home when I was on a business trip to Arkansas. He and his family treated me like family. He will be missed. God has a new angel!

    Larry was truly a great salesman. He sold me my first car in 1980 and many more after that. You will always be remembered as a man with an awesome sense of humor and contagious smile and laugh. Rest In Peace sweet man.
