Condolence & Memory Journal

Larry was a friend, a co-worker, a mentor and a guide. He never took the easy path, just the path he felt was right. He had a strength of character and intelligence that made others look to him for guidance and approval. From Red Horse to Roadway Package, he helped lead, building things, from air fields to taking a new company to an industry leader. He fought through the hard times and came out a hero. We will miss you, Larry, but our memories of you will guide us to be better people, to not give up, and to do the right thing.

Patti and Danny - my deepest sympathies to you. Larry and I started our RPS/FXG careers together on the same day, May 16, 1988. I remember that day clearly and I was lucky enough to work with him through the many years until his retirement. He was very smart, incredibly talented in IT and most important, just a wonderful person who I always enjoyed working with. I know how much he loved his family and I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this sad time.

We have so many good memories of hanging out with the Bessecks when we lived in the Pittsburgh area, and when they would drive to Ohio to visit us. We were grateful to share a fall vacation to the Outer Banks with Larry and Patti in 2019. Our sincere condolences to Patti, Danny and other family members. Larry will be greatly missed.

My mom and I are so very sorry to hear about Larry. We are so glad we got to meet up at Universal not so long ago. Deepest sympathies to Patti, Dan, and the entire family.

There was no one at work that was more proud of his son and his accomplishments. Larry loved his family and it was evident whenever he was talking about them. I never met either his wife or son but it was as if I knew them. My heart and prayers go out to both of you in this time of sorrow. May God lift you up and see you through it. You should know that he was a great man and there are no words I can express that conveys the gratitude I have for him an you his family for the service you provided for our country.
