My sincere condolences. I got to know W Bro Binney through Waterloo Lodge, and he was such a true friend and brother. I learned so much from Larry during my early masonic career.

Our deepest condolences are sent to you today dear Kirsten…….Larry was such a wonderful man and enjoyed his family so much. He loved nothing better than singing and playing his guitar with Margie – that made him so happy and we all loved to hear them sing – they were wonderful and entertained his family whenever he had the chance. We love you always Larry and we certainly will miss our family time together…….It was so important to all of us….You are up in Heaven with Mom and Dad now and they will be so happy to be with you – also Brian as well – your loving son. This holiday season will not be the same without you dear brother – our love and prayers will be with you always. May God bless you dear Larry.
