Larry enjoyed the outdoors. He like hunting and fishing. Arguing with Maggie was one of his almost favorite hobbies. He enjoyed supporting the local VFW and having cold beverages while listening and/or playing music, and pretending he could dance. However more than any of this, he enjoyed being with his grandchildren. He was the Best Buckin Pa anyone could ask for.
