Larry was an avid sportsman and a very competitive person. He loved being outdoors whether it playing golf or going to the mountains to get away from people.

He had a love hate relationship with the Denver Broncos, but he was still a fan. Watching a game with him was something to experience. There was not many sports Larry did not play at one time or another. Deltarado days mud volleyball became quite the event with him and his teams and produced many memorable games.
