  1. To Larry’s family,
    Members of the Fulton Community Theatre send our condolences to your family. We always enjoyed having Larry participate in our shows. He was a hard worker and fun to be around. We had such a good time entertaining the members of the Fulton Historical Society at their anniversary celebration at the Pratt House several years ago, Larry portraying Mr. Pratt and I was Mrs. Pratt. He seemed to enjoy the improvisation “theater” that night as well as more scripted shows. I’m very glad I saw him in “Once Upon a Mattress”. We shall miss him!

  2. Sorry to hear of your loss. Can’t say enough good stuff about Larry. I know that we, and so many, many friends will miss this man immensely.

    Go off into the sunset on your ‘bike!’ Too bad we can’t ship it with you to the great roadtrip in the sky!

    Love and peace,

    Deb & Ray
