Larry was a true to the bone Chicagoan, growing up on the Southside he was the utmost fan of Chicago sports. When his teams would win, his favorite saying was “RAC ‘EM”! He was the life of the party and lit up every room he entered with his magnetic personality. He was a master of trash talk and a connoisseur of old school music. Larry had an entrepreneurial spirit and owned High Energy Devices. Besides sports, Larry enjoyed watching classic movies and tv programs. Most of all Larry was Love. He was devoted to his mother and loving and loyal to his wife. He adored his daughters and grandchildren. He was faithful to the bond he shared with his siblings and was a mentor and role model to his nieces and nephews. He wrapped his entire extended family into his care. Larry was unequivocally the best among us. He will be dearly missed by so many.
