Nancy and family, We want to express our sincere sympathy. I knew Larry at the bank; however, our fondest memories of Larry and family are the years we spent traveling with the band. You will be in our prayers.

Nancy & family;

There is nothing so discomforting in the world as bad as watching a loved being taken away from us with so many questions left unanswered and nothing we can do to change it.......Larry was a great friend to us with many fond memories and fun times! Will always remember our racing times and card games. He was a truly wonderful person and we love and will miss his friendship and kindness. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during these difficult times you are facing.

Love,
Ida & Brad Beck

Deepest sympathy to the family. I am from Goodland, Indiana. Back in the 1960's, I attended International Business College in Fort Wayne with Larry. On a few occasions, our group from the Goodland area would give Larry a ride from the college to home since we went near there. I haven't seen or contacted Larry since we left school, but always wondered what became of him. Again, sorry for the loss.

I passed by the Bank building in Walton just last week and thought about my friend, Larry Babb. He was such a great mentor to me in the middle of my ongoing banking career. Very kind and caring, especially to us Jr Officers, as we moved through those many Bank mergers of that time. I consider it a real privilege to have known him.
