    Please accept my family’s sincere condolences and prayers. My dad, Dave O’Donnell, worked for many years with Larry and enjoyed their many rounds of golf. He considered Larry a wonderful friend. We lost my dad last August, and understand that sadness and void that is left when someone we love passes away. We are sorry for your loss. Susan, Margaret and Kevin O’Donnell

    So very sorry to hear this. I met Larry at his store many years ago in the Bayfield Mall when my family started golfing and later at Bear Creek Golf Club where he was always so happy and fun with the ladies league. My sincere condolences to his family. He will be missed by many.
