Sorry to bring up sad memories, but I have seen his work in some catalogs and he was awesome! He has a coyote mount in Research that is probably the best coyote mount I have ever seen.
It is sad so much talent is gone, for those that knew him, you were lucky. Wish I could have known him.

ive seen a mount done by him that is here where i was working here in colorado. it is a mt lion with a deer head,its in one of the research catalogs. i didnt know him personally, but i do agree that he had great talent.
Norm, are you still in Colorado? That is where I am.
I met Larry on here and in the chatroom. I started stopping by his studio in Lewistown while deer hunting in Montana. Not only was he an astonishing taxidermist, but he was also a hell of a great person. I feel fortunate to have known him while he was with us.
We are from the same town. my wife and I stopped in one day, he was working on a lifesize cape buffalo lying down. My wife said," He looks like he's resting" Larry grins from ear to ear, and said that is the theme of the clients trophy room, "at rest" He could capture attitude, and personality in everything he did. That was a week before he died. He also did a coyote head with snow and blowing wheat, that made you cold to stand and look at it. a truely gifted individual, and friend.
Hopefully there is a heaven with lots of hunting and fishing.
