At a young age, Larry lived in New York and attended school until seventh grade. The family returned to Millinocket where he completed his education early to go to work for Great Northern Paper Company. Shortly after, he met Pat and they started their lives together raising their two children.
Larry was a devoted father, grandfather, husband, brother, son, uncle and friend. People who knew Larry loved him for his sense of humor, contagious laugh and generous nature. Larry loved to make people laugh, either by teasing or telling a joke, often with adult humor!
To pass time Larry loved to spend time with friends, buy and trade, electronics and reload bullets.
