Larry enjoyed travelling the country as an OTR truck driver and after retirement liked to watch movies and trucking shows. He loved to visit his family and friends when he could, often making them laugh. He would bring back gifts for his family and friends such as magnets, t-shirts, and postcards. Larry took joy in attending pow wows and listening to some of his favorite artists, such as Ernest Monias and Toby Keith. Larry also believed in his traditional ways and attended sundances.

The family would like to thank the staff at Portage District General Hospital Medical ward for their support.
