I've been going to the Woodchoppers Jamboree in Encampment WY my whole life and Larry has been there competing the whole time.  What a joy it has been to watch him over the years.  Always smiling and telling stories.  What a pleasure to haven known him and watch him compete.  My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

We met Larry and Millie several years ago during a chainsaw competition in Sheridan Arkansas. Since that time we became good friends with them. Larry was a wonderful person and always kind to us. He was a class act ! Our condolences to Millie and the rest of the family. Till we meet again ! We love you....

Never met a nicer man in my life.  Always smiling and friendly. He and Millie raised a fine family.  We shared a love of gospel country and bluegrass music. I will miss him in this life and confidently know we will share eternity in heaven with our Lord!
