He started his career as a salesman for Star Expansion Bolt Company in NY; he was no stranger to what type of fastener needed to get the job done. Larry was a successful businessman, sportsman, mentor, and teacher. Most importantly, he was a loving husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend to so many.
