Nina, Eileen worked with Larry in Defect Management. He was such a gentle soul with a positive attitude. Even when things were going to hell you always knew it was going to be ok because he would jump in and fix the problem fast.

Nina, I was shocked when I heard that Larry passed. Like so many of his co-workers have said Larry was a hard working honest man. He told you his opinion even if it wasn't what you wanted to here. He was the backbone of the Rapid Deployment team for the past 6 years at Amdocs and will truly be missed. You and Larry's family are in my prayers.

Larry and I spent many hours playing music together in our youth. In fact all through junior and senior high. We racked up countless hours practicing and playing out at "sock hops", "battle of the Bands" as well as some local clubs. We even recorded an album which Cleveland Recording put out for us in a limited edition ( mainly for our own listening enjoyment). Larry loved to fish, go boating, and at least in his teenage years like to tinker with cars. I remember he had a yellow Mustang, what I specifically remember about that car was that one day Larry and his dad were having a disagreement about that car. I remember Larry had just washed it. Well, they had some words and his father told Larry to put the car in the garage until further notice. Which Larry promptly did ...however the floor was wet and the front end of the car ended up in the adjacent family room. Funny now, not so funny then...to say the least. Larry and I had many memories and I will always cherish his friendship. I am sure it is a great loss to his wife Nina, his loving and caring mother Coleen and his brother David... and all the friends and co-workers who had the pleasure of knowing him. I will miss Larry, In Christ love, Your longtime friend, Pastor Bob Majetich....

Nina, I am deeply saddened over Larry's death. Larry was just one of those people you couldn't help but really like. Always helpful, a quick wit, kind. Even though we never met in person, I considered him a friend and will miss him. I'm very sorry for your loss, Nina. Please know that I am thinking of you, Larry's mom and the whole family, and keeping you close in my heart and prayers. Love, Jodi

I worked with Larry for many years and words seem inadequate to express the sadness I feel. My most heartfelt sympathies to Nina and family.

My thoughts and prayers are with Nina and the rest of Larry's family... Larry and I worked together and the best thing about Larry was that he was 100% Larry 100% of the time. We never agreed on religion or politics, but we always had great conversations and he always could tell a story that would leave me laughing till I cried .. He will be truly missed

I met Larry when playing at the BrewWorks. He was very interesting to talk with and always encouraging. That is special in today's world, when a person looks outside themself to support others. I will miss him apon my next visit.
John left a message on May 1, 2016:
I remember the first few times I met Larry. He seemed to keep to himself. As everyone got to know him, that changed. Larry was the genuine article. He was not afraid to tell you where he stood on things. Giving me a good natured hard time when I had a water instead of a beer. I always looked forward to our next meeting. I will miss you my friend.

Almost speechless. Larry was the kind of guy who makes you feel good about people. There was nothing fake or shallow about him. He was 100% genuine. And to know his was truly a gift. Rest in peace, dear friend, we will keep you in our hearts and mugs!
