Larry had a love for the outdoors and shared his passion for hunting and hiking and was a card-carrying member of the ‘Girl Scouts’.  Larry made it a priority to teach his girls how to be self-sufficient and it wasn’t uncommon to see him with them under a car, rebuilding a roof, tying flies or in the dessert learning outdoor survival. 

Larry grew up in the Catholic Church but his relationship with God was a personal one.  His time to worship was spent fishing or hiking in the dessert.
