Larry was a special force and guide for the kids of Troop 74 in Hummelstown when he was scout master there. It was all about the kids and what adventures they could come up with.
Big “A” and Wiski would winter camp and hike just about anywhere with those kids and they loved him for it. The impact and good influence he had on those young men lives on today and many special memories will remain for a long time.
He was just that way with anything he touched.
Love and miss you Big “A”.
Hank Imhof and family.

Dear Janet, Dick & Sandy, Pat and Peg, and Larry…………..Larry was a wonderful man and will surely be missed by all of those that loved him.  We have many memories of him that make us smile when we think of them today. He and Hassimoto were always jokesters! I guess that’s one of the things that made them special together.  May you all find comfort  and peace in remembering all of your good moments with Larry and the time we all shared with him. R.I.P. Larry……….your journey with this life is over and all the suffering you had.  May you now have eternal peace.
Hass and Nancy
