    Remembering his contributions to MPM especially his extensive knowledge of the Pacific area after his years in the Navy He was an enthusiastic member of Clue Crew and added to the frivolity of the group with his great sense of humor. A loss to all those who knew him and enjoyed his friendship.

    My deepest sympathies. Larry was an extraordinary man who gladly shared his life experiences and knowledge with others, especially at the Milwaukee Public Museum. I had the privilege of having him as my mentor when I trained at MPM as a Docent. We will miss him but not ever forget him.

    As a fellow docent at MPM, I knew and loved Larry. Always so generous with his time and knowledge, he was a delight to work with. I am going to miss him immensely.

    Larry was our favorite condo neighbor for over 20 years. Such a gentleman, he was thoughtful , with a great wit and we shared a love of good mystery authors. God bless you Larry, and thank you for your service.
