Larry was a hardworking family man that was a true provider for his family. He was the owner of DC Trees and worked long hours and in all weather conditions. When a friend was in need, Larry would be right there to help. He was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed fishing and hunting. He would often make the comment that he "wished he could make a career out of fishing". His many jokes and his outgoing personality drew people to Larry. The children flocked to him and enjoyed the many pranks he would pull on them. He enjoyed watching his sons play sports and together they enjoyed watching football, spending time with his daughter and watching wrestling with his nephews. He enjoyed many gatherings with family and friends, stemming from pig roasts to all around fun outdoors. Larry was a true social butterfly.
