Larry had an amazing career building roads and bridges in Washington, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Alaska.

Larry and Mary moved to Idaho then because it was always home to him.

A small memorial is being planned for this spring near Bonners Ferry, Idaho where Larry worked on the Moyie River Bridge from 1962 to 1964.
