Larry was an avid runner and sportsman.  He enjoyed games like Scrabble that challenged his intelligence & extensive vocabulary.

Larry was a sweet and kind-hearted gentleman with a very sharp analytical mind, He was a great conversationalist and active listener. His ability to recall previous conversations and ask to follow up questions showed his concern and compassion for others. He was forever gathering data, but never stood in judgement. His love of family, sense of humor and quick wit will be greatly missed.

    Forest Lawn Funeral Home has been by our side as we have laid some of our family members to rest. They made the difficult planning as easy on us as they could.
    All the arrangements for both the funeral services and the burials were well staffed and beautiful. The Darst family knows how important compassion is at those difficult times in our lives. That’s why we trust them to be there for us when the need arises.
