Bay Family
When I first started at the Skills Center in 1978, Larry was one of the first people I met. We hit it off right away. He always had the students' best interest in mind and was a dedicated teacher and later years a dedicated administrator. When I think of Larry I'll be reminded of that, his passion for the Detriot Tigers and all the laughs we had. RIP Larry.
