Larry was one of the good guys. I was privileged to serve with him as a Volunteer Fireman in Newtown, work with him and call him a friend.

I met Buck and Donna's family 46 years ago. We went on vacations together with both our families many times. We had many Birthday parties for our families, dinners, trips to Pigeon Forge, Tenn. Buck became one of my Best friends, he would do anything for you. Being a veteran for 30 years, Buck and I would talk for hours on the times we spent in service. Buck, my Friend, you will definitely be missed. God speed, have fun in Heaven, see you soon. Ret Master Sgt, your friend, Avery & Barb

My favorite day of the week as a child, was Sunday. Because Sunday was the day that grandma and pappy would pick me up, take me and my cousins to church and then take us to their house for Sunday dinner. He was such a great man. Built us swing sets, fixed our bikes, took care of our booboos. Pappy was a one of a kind, jack of all trades and I will always cherish the many stories he told me, the memories, the laughs, and the many things he taught me. He taught me hard work always pays off. God blessed me with the best pappy in the world and I will always be grateful for that.

What a super working partner at Makino for many years, but most of all a great friend. Larry's smile always entered the room before he did. We all know he earned his special people award on earth and in heaven. Love and prayers to all of you. Jim and Margaret Miller
