After service to his country with an honorable discharge, Larry began a lifetime career as a railroad conductor with CSX Railroad Co. After Larry had retired, he worked part time for attorney’s as a private investigator.
Larry was very active in his local VFW and he was known as a man that had a full life of keeping himself busy.
