Larry served in the Navy aboard the USS Coral Sea during the Vietnam War from 1970-1974. Upon his return he worked at Richmond Power and Light in the Whitewater Generator Plant. He transferred to the Meter Department where he became Meter Department Superintendent. After 20 years, he joined Brownstown Electrical Supply Company (BESCO) where he became one of the most well-known and respected educators of the metering industry. He retired from BESCO in 2017 and then started his own metering consulting firm.
Larry was an avid Colts fan, holding season tickets for over 20 years. He enjoyed fishing on his fishing boats, camping at his beloved summer home, cruising on his golf cart, listening to music, studying God’s word daily, sharing the Gospel with others and spending time with his family and friends.
The family would like to thank Dr. Sulfikar Ibrahim and his entire staff at Reid Oncology for their kind and loving care.
