    Those of us here in Cabo San Lucas that knew Larry are saddened and at a loss by his passing……
    Both Barry and I have known Larry for many years, and certainly will miss him. There was never a dull moment when you were in the presence of this man.
    Joan I only wish you had more time with Larry to enjoy your new home and retired life together.
    I’m sure at this point he is up in heaven trying to get a hockey team going and getting all the particulars in order to run it !!!!!
    Take care Joan and if anything is needed we are a phone call away. Please send Barry and my regards to the rest of the family….

    Thinking of you all

    My condolences to all of Larry’s family members and friends. I was the play-by-play “voice” of the Wichita Wind very early in my career, and those were two exciting and happy years in my life. Larry was a “hands on” owner, and we had one terrific season with John Muckler as our coach and Edmonton as the parent club in the NHL. May you find peace and comfort during this difficult time–I will always remember…
