There are only a handful of people who come into your world, and touch your life in a dramatic fashion. Some of the people are just flickers of light during a long life, while others are consistent glows for years. For me, Larry was that consistent glow. He was one of my dearest friends for close to 30 years.

Those of us who grew up with him or worked sideby- side with him over the years grew not only to love the man and respect him for his kindness, his knowledge, his relentless dedication to the fuel handler but above all his passion for the mission.
