  • I am in total disbelief! He is a very good friend of my dad’s James A Jones. But my dad was living with Larry in Anaheim Hills California I went out to stay for a few months after I graduated high school. It was the best time of my life. Just a couple of weeks ago I mentioned I would love to see the Grand Canyon someday. I have flown over it but never been close to it. Larry dropped off a magazine to Kingston where I work. I didn’t see him he just left it for me. I called to thank him and we talked about getting together and catching up. You just never know when you lose a loved one. I am so sad Larry! I will tell Dad and he will be very upset. You will be dearly missed by so many. We love you! Always and forever oh, The Jones Family

  • Larry had a great talent for art. He also was a good man. I got to know him by hanging out with Gary. Those were good times which I cherish.

  • I have known Larry for many years. He was always very pleasant and talented.

    With deepest sympathy,
