Larry was a breath of fresh air who lit up a room he entered. He and Celia were inseparable and true example of a good marriage. He will be sorely missed by so many at his winter home in Orange Grove Park in Edinburg, Texas. May God bless Larrys family and give them comfort during this difficult time.
