I very much enjoyed knowing Larry. He was a unique individual, capable of travelling in many different circles. One of the things I most admired about him was that he was his own man. I never saw him in a situation that he was not true to himself, which is something I think is pretty rare. In addition to knowing him personally, I knew him professionally when we worked together in the addictions field. He was a really, really good at counselor. Our clients liked a lot him because he always treated them with respect and kindness. Though he looked like a tough guy, he was a genuinely kind person who showed considerable empathy for the people he counselled. Though he was a serious person, he had a great sense of humor and was a lot fun to be around. Add to this list that he was a devoted father and husband who together with Roberta raised four children that have turned into pretty terrific adults. He had a lot to be proud of. Finally, I am thankful that we were friends, and that over the course of the years he'd left me a lot of great memories. Chris Armentano
