Larry graduated from Maplewood (Mo.) High School, but prided himself on having begun his education in a rural, one-room schoolhouse. He earned the rank of Eagle Scout in high school.
At Princeton he enrolled in Army ROTC, played freshman basketball, majored in economics, joined Terrace, played on almost all its interclub teams, and became president in senior year.
After graduation Larry enrolled at University of Michigan Law School, married Lilly in 1962, graduated in 1963, and served two years as an officer in the Army Artillery. They settled in Albuquerque, N.M., where he began to practice law.
In 1975 Larry left his law practice and founded Security Escrow Corp. to service land contracts, mortgages, and deeds. It was the first enterprise of its type in New Mexico. He sold the company in 2001 and retired. His plans to enjoy golf, skiing, hiking, and travel were temporarily suspended by a successful battle against colon cancer.
Larry remained dedicated to the Boy Scouts as a Scoutmaster and a director of the Greater Southwest Council. He also had the pleasure of seeing son Lance and grandson Kyle earn their own Eagle Scout ranks.
Larry is survived by Lilly, their two children, and four grandchildren.
