Sad to hear, my condolences to his family and friends. Larry and I go back over 20 years. If you wanted to know anything about a the Bennett Pump company he was the man. RIP Larry.

Tom.

I met him right after I got in the hobby in the late 1980s. He was a Bennett Pump expert because he spent his life working for them. I purchased a lot of Bennett literature and ECO parts from him over the years. Really a nice guy.
