Larry was a best friend for life. We've been in contact through the years, touching base regularly. We'd talk baseball quite a bit. He was a big Mets fan. Had a whole room full of baseball memorabilia stacked in shoeboxes like store room. He was most happy, though, with his music. A striving recording artist, he and his partner & friend, Bobby Iovinella, wrote, sang, and published several songs. He was gifted. He will be missed.

I knew Larry through school and always followed the Esquires.  Richard Salvatore and I use to borrow his sisters car to go to Mechanicsville to listen to the Esquires play at Joyce’s Log Cabin our senior year.  In its day it was called slicky Joyce's a Speakeasy during prohibition. ​Larry was a great drummer and had a very quick wit and was very funny.  The Esquire's were a great group Led by Bobby Iovinella on the the Gretsch Guitar, Pat Andrioli lead singer (Great rendition of Bobby Darrin’s Dream Lover), Antony Miaello on the Accordion that was played like an organ and added so much to the arrangements and Jay Camp on the sax.

We use to go to the Wayne Tavern over near the Schenectady Museum after their gigs and drink a few beers and had many laughs.  It was the first time I had a drink as an underage teen. 

Jerry Pisano you offered a nice remembrance to your great friend.  I am sorry for your lose. I extend my condolences to Larry’s family and other friends. RIP Larry…..

Ask me some time about the clock bit “what time is it Larry?”.
