Larry loved to listen to country music. He enjoyed working with his hands and tinkering with the radio and television. He was an avid sports fan enjoying his hometown, Detroit teams including the Tigers, Pistons, and Red Wings. Although, he was kind-hearted and generous, and liked to help others, he wasn’t confused with any saints since he could be grumpy from time to time.
