Memories Timeline


  1. I can not for this life of me believe you are really gone. You were part of our family even though we weren’t blood related. You always treated me like I was one of your children. You were a Great man and I’m gonna miss you so much. That big hug when you saw me I will always remember. The last time I saw you, you hugged me and told me you loved me and I will treasure that last memory of you. Thank you for your friendship to my mom and dad. They will miss you terribly. I could write a book on my childhood with you and your family included. So many good memories. Sending much love and prayers for your family.

  2. Dear Family— what can I say—We are going to be lost without Larry or Hippie as we all called him. This is so shocking to me and Jack. We loved him so much!! We have some good memories of Hippie. One thing for sure he won’t ever be forgotten. He was a good person, a hard worker and a Forever Friend to us. There’s not one thing that if we needed and Hippie knew it, he would fall right in there and get it for us. He and Jack trucked and worked together for many years. Our hearts are broken! To all the family, you are in our thoughts and prayers. This void will never be filled again cause there was only one Hippie in this world. God Bless Each One Of You!!

    • Joni and family, Larry and I were childhood friends, classmates and neighbors……what a great guy! As it goes we all grew up and some we sadly lost touch with and didn’t see for many years. A couple years ago I briefly spoke with him while at the gas station in Vass. He ask how we had been over the years and I ask about him and his family. He happily spoke about his children and his wife, Joni…..I married an Angel he said and her name is Joni. He said she is a good girl, she’s perfect for me and certainly I would have to agree because happiness seem to be coming from his pores and when he mentioned your name and spoke of children with a smile his eyes sparkled. I will always remember Larry from that day with that smile that you put on his face and the sparkle that you put in his eyes. I sincerely pray that God will bless and comfort you and bring peace to you and the family during this time of sadness and heartache.

  19. Hugs and Prayers from Tennessee to you and your entire family Joni. I know Larry will be greatly missed.

    LuAnn (Zack and Courtney’s Aunt Lu)
