    So sorry to hear of Larry’s passing. Unfortunately, we were on vacation and did not hear about it until the day of our return, August 6. May he rest in peace.

    I just learned of Larry’s death. Larry worked part time covering sports for a variety of Milwaukee radio stations. During the years I was reporting for WISN he and I spent many hours at Milwaukee County Stadium watching some not-so-good ball clubs. Radio and TV reporters in those days were assigned folding chair seats in an outdoor steel overhang at the stadium call the Loge –there were some cold nights. Larry was such a pleasure to converse with, on any number of subjects way beyond sports. I always enjoyed seeing him and admired the work he did for Milwaukee County and its vulnerable populations. A couple of years ago by chance I saw Larry and his son having supper at a restaurant on Port Washington Road. We had a great time catching up. Larry was a kind, sensitive human being who made our world a better place.I am happy to have known him. All my best to his family.
