Larry met the love of his life, Constance (Connie) Marie Henning, at an after school dance in 1961 when she was 16 and he was 18. They went steady for the rest of their life and were married on August 13, 1966. They searched the country for a "Garden Spot" and picked Charlottesville, Virginia where they settled in 1971 and where Larry started at the UVA Children and Youth Clinic and soon established his private practice in Dentistry. He retired on March 1, 2020 in his 50th year. During those years he served as President of the Charlottesville-Albemarle Dental Society and was involved in many activities in the profession.

His real avocation was Golf which he learned at the age of 6 and won his first Club Championship at 16. His last tournament was winning the Virginia-West Virginia Seniors Championship in his 70's. Throughout his golf career he won many Championships up and down the East Coast and holds records at numerous courses and at Farmington Country Club, his home course. He served as Chairman of the Golf Committee, and Greens committee and wrote the golf section of the Farmington Commemorative Book. He served on the Board of the Virginia State Golf Association. His motto was "Practice Makes Perfect" and was seen on the course in all weather conditions and was famous for "hitting out of trouble". He loved to coach and give tips to his fellow golfers.
