  • You will be dearly missed. We used to have good times hanging out on the east side. Rest in Peace my dear cousin. No more suffering.

  • Sad to see this. Larry Schnees has been a name I’ve known for years and years from my dad/stepmom. Only this year did he friend me on Facebook. I really enjoyed seeing his projects and seeing his positive posts regarding his treatments. So sorry for your loss.

  • I am a distant cousin. Carolyn Troutman McCain is my Mother. She often talked about Larry and how she remembered him. I remember meeting/ seeing Larry at my Aunt Bettys and he was a great guy, full of life. My heart goes out to the family. ❤️ Love to all from Florida family.

  • So sorry for your loss, Larry was always such a nice man. He was always friendly, smiling and taking the time to have a conversation. Rest in Heaven 😢
