Larry was a employee of Conrad Valley Farm for the past 20 years. Larry was a special friend, a person you could trust, and a joy to be around. He was very mindful of his work, being a excellent mechanic and truck driver. He loved driving the green Peterbilt and spent many hours behind the wheel. I could always count on him doing a good job and he could solve any problem that came along. He always had a good story to tell and could be a funny person to be around. He will be greatly missed.
