As a co-worker with Larry I always appreciated his calm demeanor, his humor, his smile, and his laugh. He was one of the few who could give you a sketch to describe in detail the conditions in the field. Actually he probably didnt do too many sketches, just fine drawings. Im glad to own one. Im sure he will be missed by many. I know he will be missed at our retiree breakfasts.
