    Dear Joyce & family,

    Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the passing of Larry this past week. He was a true gentleman who carried himself with such dignity. I particularly enjoyed our occasional political discussions over a pint or two and of course playing against (and occasionally with) him during Friday trivia nights. No doubt a tremendous loss for our Irish Club community.

    I was informed this morning by a colleague of Larry’s passing and wanted to offer my condolences. I enjoyed working with Larry for the years he was at Thermo-Kinetics and he has been missed since he has been left. We are very sorry for your loss, and I will be unable to attend his service as I will be travelling. Please accept our condolences.

    Hi Joyce, I was also very sorry to hear of Larrys passing. The club and the community has a true gentleman who always had a smile and a kind word for those fortunate enough to be in his company.
    My fondest memory of him will be seeing him laugh loud and hard at our comedy shows at the club.
    God rest his soul and bring him home into the eternal love and peace that he so richly deserves.
