Larry’s life revolved around his family, spending time up at the Creek with all his siblings, taking the grandkids in the convertible to go for ice cream, barbeques, many camping trips and family vacations to Disneyland. He had many hobbies and passions from airplanes, learning to fly, metal detecting, to restoring antique cars.
Larry served his country during the Koren War in the U.S. Army. After leaving the service, Larry worked in the oilfield for 4 years. He then went to work in the auto parts business for Bradshaw Auto Parts, which would lead to him becoming an owner of Triangle Parts in 1979. Larry was a parts-man; he liked to buy old junker cars and fix them up. One year he bought and sold 15 different cars. You never knew from one day to the next what he would come home with. Along with restoring cars, Larry enjoyed planting a garden at his home and growing flowers in front of the parts store.
