My (Late)Husband Harv and I was friends with Larry and Jerry. We all worked for TDC. We all hung out together or Harv would go to Larry's house and visit with him and Jerry. Where there was Larry, there was Jerry. All 3 would go hunting and fishing together. We use to get tickled with the Campbell bros. Especially when they argued- you would have thought they were married. Larry was a very quiet and sweet man. I cleaned his house on my off days , he would leave and go to Jerry's or my house and visit Harv. Larry loved his family and kids. He would brag on them all the time. Larry loved life , he was always doing something. Larry will truly be missed. I know Jerry was waiting on him at heavens gate to take him in to be reunited with his parents and the rest of his family and friends. Larry We love you and Thank you for the memories. RIP my friend. Praying for comfort, peace to the family.
