Lary made his final flight (hopefully in a Stearman biplane) on January
9, 2013 at the age of 62. He will be dearly missed by his wife and best
friend of nearly 44 years, Carla. He is also survived by son, Geoff
(Sara); daughter, Andie Helmich (Andy); grandchildren, Elizabeth, Jack
and Luke; Wiley; siblings, Marty, Bruce, Bobbi Sye and Ginny Pledger.
Lary was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia on December 30, 2012.
During the last six months of his life, he was able to do the things he
loved which included flying, motorcycling and spending much time with
family and friends. It's important to know there was nothing left
unsaid. We wish to thank the nursing staff at Methodist Hospital for the
excellent care and kindness given to Lary. Additionally, we thank Dr.
Devineni, Dr. Zent and Dr. Byrd for their tireless efforts to help Lary.
