Larry was employed and worked most of his career for the United States Post Office. He worked hard, but spent what ever time he had free split between his family and his second passion, fishing. He loved being on the open waters of Rhode Island or Candlewood Lake fishing and taking family and friends on his boat. He will be remembered for his meticulous lawn that he kept, wonderful advice that he gave, generous pigs ears he gave his grand doggies and most importantly the love he showed as his new role of “Pop-Pop” to his beloved grandsons.
