Although I did not know Larry well in high school he and I developed a multi-decade business relation. He was the principle in Bonnel Air and provided air conditioning and heating services through St. Pete abd the surrounding areas.  He took care of multiple commercial and residential properties on my behalf and always enjoyed a stellar reputation for reliable service. His sister Carol, manning the phones, spoke frequently with all their longtime customers. Larry was in N.C escaping a FL hurricane when he developed an exacerbation of an existing chronic condition and passed away in a local ER. Larry was an outstanding person and will be missed.

This is indeed sad news. I knew both Lee and Larry and they were good people.  Glad I got to see Larry at the last reunion.  He was still a quiet gentleman, as he was a quiet teen when I knew him at NEHI.
