I met Larry in Chester, NJ when his family lived there, 1963-1967? Our friendship lasted after the family moved to Ohio. We did lose touch as adults only to reconnect last summer at my 50th high school reunion in NJ. Larry and I had some wild times as kids. I will miss our conversations. My deepest regards to Larry's family. David von Borstell

I was one of "Spoon's" fellow classmates at Ashland. I may have even accompanied one of his bassoon solos, but we sang together in our college choir. I remember his smile and his laugh especially. Once we stopped in at his family's home in Cincinnati as we traveled to the city for an OMEA convention. The memory that I remember best is when we "battled" over the boy soprano solo in Bernstein's Chichester Psalms. Larry wanted to sing it so badly in his falsetto voice, but ultimately Cal chose me. Ironically, that work was sung at Trinity Lutheran where he worked. It was so sad to hear of his unexpected death. The photo of him sitting in the pews looks so much like the guy I remember from our college years. The family has my sincere condolences.

Larry played bassoon in the Ashland College Symphonic Band in 1972-76 when I was Director of Bands. He was a marvelous musician and a great guy. My condolences to his family.

Larry and I had plenty of great conversations when I was at the church during the week for the Beacon After School Program. Larry always had something nice to say and had a caring heart. A gentle soul.
