Larry and Barb had a love some have only dreamed of. They enjoyed the simple things in life and that was enough for them.

If you knew Larry you would know he was one of the friendliest people you could meet. Always had a beer and smile and that’s how we want him remembered.

He is survived by his wife, Barbara Sanders; daughter Brandi Judson and husband Jim; daughter Nicole Shappell and husband Bill; four grandchildren: Jimmy, Lucas and Trent Judson and Hailey Shappell; five sisters: Alice Henderson, Katherine Buchnam, Marjorie Hess, Harriet Little and Elaine Schoonover; brother Harold Sanders; and numerous nieces and nephews.

As per his wishes, there will be no services and cremation will be held privately.

Memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society, Memorial Processing Center, PO Box 7, East Syracuse, NY 13057.
