Message: Flintstone golf in my yard, at the park, in the mountains, at the campground, along the river...and the sharp wit, comraderie and fierce competetion Needles brought to every match. We also shared an important love of smoked meat products. I've lost a brother and miss him very much.

Message: Hey Needles, How many miles? How many peaks? How many Flintstone Golf matches? A lot, but never enough. The new england woodlands just won't be the same without your distinctive "Hoot!" echoing through the blue-blazed trees. Go long, my friend.

Message: I worked with Larry at the Phoenix many years ago. What drew me to Larry was his quick wit, and I shared his love of sarcasm. We also shared a love of skiing. My first trip “out west” was with Larry to Steamboat Springs. We had a blast!! I think I’ll always remember Larry for the way he’d hit you with a good dose of sarcasm, followed by words of encouragement or compassion along with his funny chuckle. I hadn’t seen or talked with Larry in years, but when I heard the news of his passing, I was greatly saddened. My deepest condolences to all of Larry’s family.

Message: With a sad heart I read the news of Larry's death. Losing a child is a terrible thing, and my heart breaks for you. I know you are both strong, and will find the strength to endure. I remember his Milwaukee years, and know that he grew up to be a fine man that you can be very proud of. I send my love and wish you strength. Rosalie

Message: A long time friend of my husband, Trapper, you became one of my closest friends too. I will always remember the wonderful times we had plus the great trips near and far. A kind and generous person with a healthy dose of humor and sarcasm, you always made me laugh, sometimes at myself (more often at you), without a trace of any misplaced intent. You will be sorely missed. Climb high and eat lots of pork there.

Message: I am very sorry to hear about the passing of Needles. I had heard about him for so many, many years that it was almost as if I knew him. I believe that he was a person who overcame difficulties with panache, that he was an inspiration to others with his humor. I will keep Needles in my thoughts, Ron

Message: Needles we shared many humerous travels together over the years. Many formal meals and flintstone golf at the huts were spent with friends. Long study hours at UConn working through our degrees. You were always the best of friends. And here you are breaking trail again for the rest of us. You will truly be missed. A long heartfelt HOOT. Whoops
