    My sincere condolences to Larry’s family. Far too soon to be leaving us. I was a classmate of Larry’s at U of C, and the geophysical community is still a close knit group even after all these years. We will miss his optimism and camaraderie in the industry. God Bless.

  6. Sharon, I worked with Larry in the late 90’s and was always struck by his integrity, cheerfulness and his sincere dedication to his family. He really was one of those “great guys” to work with. I know that you must miss him terribly and I’m so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayer are with you and the girls.
