In our 60th reunion South High School (Denver) memories book just published Larry's tragic death is noted which led me to this web site. For those family members left behind so many years ago I send special thoughts and prayers albeit 48 years late. To his son our full support as we give the same to all those in law enforcement. Have had three family members in law enforcement and two in the court system, have served as president of a volunteer police team in a mid west city .
and am currently on the Chief of Police's advisory council here in Reno. We cannot thank these men and women enough for what they do. God Bless
