school in Marana when the family moved from Silverbell to
Tucson he then attended Apollo Jr High where he played
volleyball he even took 1st place. Larry graduated from
Sunnyside High in 1980. Larry began his lifelong
employment record working at Tucson Wholesale Florist in
1978 at the age of 16 he stayed there until 2002 (24 years)
when the business was closing. Larry and Linda met at the
1
flower shop and began dating in 1981 they married on June
4, 1982 at Catalina Methodist Church in Tucson, Az
(celebrated 39 years this June). When Tucson Wholesale
closed he became a busdriver for Marana Unified School
District in 2002 where he was called the best employee
Dennis had ever had. While working weekdays most
evenings and some weekends as a bus driver he began a
second job in 2005 working for McDonalds he never had a
day off and thats the way he wanted it to be. Up until late
December of 2019 he was employed by both MUSD (17
years) and McDonalds (14 years).Larry was the hardest
working man any had ever met. Larry enjoyed hunting,
fishing, watching sports both on tv and in person. Larry
absolutely loved watching and helping his grandchildren
with their baseball. His grandchildren were the light of his
life. Larry was a die hard fan of the Dallas Cowboys, Los
Angeles Lakers, Cincinnati Reds, and the University of
Arizona. If he was in the stands of any game you knew it
because he was loud and would even yell at the refs at the
high school football games for calling or not calling proper
plays and fouls. Larry was the kind of man that everyone
loved and wanted to be around always doing for someone
else. Larry will be missed tremendously by all who knew him
especially his family.
