After many years at General Motors Larry began his law practice in Englewood and continued helping clients until his death. Larry and Ruth Ann answered a call to service and joined the Peace Corps in the late 1960s.

After their tour in India they spent months traveling the world which began a lifelong love of travel and visiting other countries. He loved cruising the world with his wife Ruth Ann, eating heartily, boating and jet skiing at their home on Dale Hollow Lake, zip lining around the world and playing Euchre and Pinochle late into the nights with family and friends.
