Larry was an active citizen of the Town of Mint Hill through his physical presence at events and social media. He cared about people and the community. In recent years, I had the pleasure of witnessing what most likely were only a few of his many acts of kindness to others through good deeds. For example, while at Great Clips one day, he quietly bought coffee/soda for all the stylists; and, he often assisted neighbors on Nextdoor by offering tech advice or lending a helping hand/tool for small home repairs.
