Larry grew up on the eastside of Indianapolis, graduated from Arsenal Technical High School, class of 1967. He retired from IUPUI where he was employed as an electrician/fire protection services technician for IUPUI, Indianapolis campus, for many years. As a youngster, he loved to tinker with all things electrical and was forever dragging home a discarded radio, etc., in the hopes he could get it working again. He was a long time resident of the southside of the city. He was an active member of the local Mended Hearts support group where he served as Vice President. Larry loved the R.V. lifestyle and had an absolute fascination for a well-crafted campfire.
He was loved and will be missed.
