I am sorry for the passing of Larry. I loved the Littlefield get togethers - hearing all the old stories, laughing, catching up on the families. I remember going to Aunt Virginia and Uncle Sherm's house and playing with the cousins. I can still hear Larry's laugh - it was a great laugh! Love to all the family, Vicki L Olson

I will miss talking to Larry while I was passing on my walks. We would tell stories about old cars, military days etc. He was always busy in the garage or around the house. The Malan's have been great neighbors for the past twenty seven years and he will be greatly missed.

My heart is saddened at the passing of my Uncle Larry. Even though our families did not keep in touch like we should, I have such a warm place in my heart that holds all the memories of the Malan get togethers. Uncle Larry and Aunt Barbara were always such a happy couple, I received so many hugs and love from them. My thoughts are with all of you as you say goodbye to such a wonderful husband, dad, brother, uncle and friend. Hey Uncle Larry, please give a hug to Grandma and Grandpa and my dad. Love you...Sheri

To me Larry was one of those people who lit up the room when he came in. He had that great quality of a honorable man and and an forever child. He was special. I feel so sad that we have lost such a lovely person. We could use more like him. Heartfelt condolences to all who loved him Kathy Gray(past emp.Sandtrap)
