I just heard of Larry's passing. I always appreciated how much he helped us twenty five years ago when we started Lighting Dynamics. Larry was instrumental in helping us off to a successful start and was always a source of great support and advice.

God Bless,
Tony Plonner

I am so sad to hear of the passing of Larry. He was such a sweet person and always seemed to be smiling. It has been many years since I last saw him although we did graduate together from S. H. Blair High in Hattiesburg.

Please know that you are in my thoughts. May God bless you and your family and strengthen you as you go through the next few weeks and months.

I was so sorry to learn of Larry's passing. He was a high school classmate of mine, and although he and I were not close during that time of our lives, to this day I vividly remember his big, bright smile and how genuinely happy and life-loving he always seemed. You are in my heart, my thoughts, and my prayers over such a devastating loss.

I am so sorry to hear about Larry's passing. He was a good friend and lived down the street from me. He always had a smile on his face and I always thought of him as a gentle giant because I was always looking up at him. He will be missed by all of us from Class of 1970. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
