We are so heartbroken to learn that Larry had passed away. We have known Larry and his wife LaVon since the early nineties—we did allot of camping and old car shows together until LaVon was unable to travel anymore. They both will be missed by so many. RIP - Please accept our heartfelt condolences. Virgil and Maureen Wilson
