He received a National Defense Service Medal and in 1974 was honorably discharged. He worked at Avery Dennison as an engineer and machinist until he retired at age 55, so he could fulfill a dream to relocate in West Glover, Vermont and build a home there with his fiance' Cheryl. When not fishing, Larry enjoyed being with family and friends camping, riding his snowmobile, and his four-wheeler or just relaxing on his pontoon boat. He had a love for animals, nature and helping others.
