As a young salesperson selling industrial maintenance products, I first met Larry at the Toledo Express Airport in 1979. Many years later I was able to help him sell his house in Sylvania. We continued to stay in touch even after he moved to Tucson. While vacationing in Arizona, my wife and I met Larry and Janis at their favorite restaurant in Tucson for a meal and to talk a bit about old times. What I will remember about Larry is he was always fair and honest. My condolences to Janus and her family. I am so sorry for your loss.

Condolences and best wishes to Jan and the family from all Aladdin Knights. Larry and Jan ran two Gatherings as General Knights. They were very active in the Club and enjoyed their lamps and friends made through collecting. Larry appreciated the "Magic" of the Aladdin lamp to emit white light as well as heat to take the chill off winter cold. Love from Aladdin collectors.
