He graduated from Natrona County High School in 1983 and attended the University of Wyoming where he obtained his Bachelors Degree in Accounting in 1995.

He is preceded in death by his grandparents.
He loved to tell jokes and was a prankster. He had a love for sports, particularly for the Las Vegas Raiders, Michigan Wolverines, and the New York Yankees. He loved to play cribbage, almost any type of card game. He lived life to the fullest, always laughing and loving to be around family and friends. Three and a half years ago Larry met the woman who he was supposed to spend the rest of his life with (who knew it would be so soon). Larry was the kind of man who would help anyone in need. He had the kindest heart, when he was home, he spent many hours snuggling with his 3 dogs and 4 cats. He was loved by so many people and will be greatly missed.
Later this summer there will be a celebration of life to honor Larry by spreading his ashes on top of Casper Mountain
