  • My condolences to Larry and his family. I worked with Larry at AMSA-56 from 1989 till when Larry retired. I enjoyed his knowledge both at the AMSA shop and from the military. I never serviced with Larry, but his military wisdom helped me during my military career. I still remember Larry’s sense of humor and the other side when Larry meant business. Still today, I think back, now that I am retired the stories that surface at times when I am reminiscing with someone about those days at the AMSA shop. We will all miss Larry, but all the memories we had will last forever.
    RIP Larry…
