Larry was a WWII veteran, serving in the U.S. Navy. Following his service, he received a BS in Business Administration from Boston University in 1956. He was employed by SDC for many years, assisting MIT in the development of computer programs for the Apollo Guidance System. He ended his career as a project manager for Bolt Beranek and Newman.
He enjoyed WWII history and artifacts, craft modeling, playing ice hockey in his younger years, and was a collector of eclectic odds and ends. His moniker among family was Earl Handy, possessing every nut and bolt known to man - along with the matching wrenches! He was known for his quick wit and unique sense of humor. He will be missed but the stories will surely live on.
