He will be greatly missed by his wife of 35 years Rosetta, his stepchildren Chad Hunt and Lisa Blanchette, 10 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, his sister Helen Liddle of Wisconsin, several nieces and nephews, and his good friend Fred Schamber. According to Larry’s wishes, there will be no services, and burial will take place in St. Catherine’s Cemetery in Ravenna.

I agree with my brother that words can not express anything when the loss is so great. Larry was "the farm". He knew everything and everyone. He had wonderful stories and gave us laughter. He was caring to those going through difficulties. He was hardened by life, but his eyes often had a twinkle. We will miss his voice and family talks around the kitchen table on "the farm". I had planned to bring my Mom to see Larry in mid May and we are devastated that we were not able to see him again.

Words can't express the sorrow of the loss of someone who I have known all my life and was like a second father to me. I spent my summers working with him for many years. I was fortunate to learn mechanics, humor, and most importantly a good work ethic. Larry was a man of honor and integrity. I have tried to instill these values on to my own children. I was happy when he met Rose and had a great family. He will will be deeply missed. Dave Liddle
