Larry had recently retired after 41 years of service from Consolidated Communications.  He felt a special bond with many of those he worked with day after day.  He loved to fish and to be outdoors piddling with anything he could get his hands on.   The love he had for his grand babies was like no other, family meant the world to him, and he held a special place in his heart for all his friends.  Larry touched the lives of countless people throughout his community with selfless acts of kindness.   He will be loved and truly missed by many.
