I have fond memories of your dad when I grew up in Griswold Heights. We were friends. My sister Ellen, my mom, Grace, and my dad, Roy use to visit his mom Dorothy. When my mom made chocolate chip cookies one day, we passed out all the cookies to Larry and the neighborhood. Lol. We all got in trouble but later laughed about it. In later years we got reacquainted through my ex-family relatives. What a small world we said. He was a wonderful, kind person. R.I.P.
