Good morning to all of Larry's family, friends and colleagues,

Larry passed away in his sleep early this morning, March 25, 2021. He had taken a turn for the worse two days ago but hospice helped him be comfortable.  His brothers and I were by his side, the music he loved so much was playing and, though the past three months were oh so challenging, he ended his earthly journey peacefully.  We will be celebrating Larry's life with all of you sometime this fall when we can be together safely.  Thanks for your love and support.

Madeleine, Mark and Hal

Hi everyone in Larry's large circle, 

Tomorrow is Larry's birthday. Please leave him a note wishing him peace and love on this day. Madeleine has let us know that he is hearing each comment and is so grateful to have you all in his life. 

With Love, 



From Madeleine Gardberg

Larry came home today from Paoli Hospital and is surrounded by loved ones.  His son Michael is playing his favorite music and basketball is on in the background.  He has perked up considerably in the last few hours.
