Fred told us at the meeting tonight that the family removed Larry from a breathing machine and he has no signs of brain activity. So, he probably will stop breathing soon. :(

I last talked with him at our club work day a couple of weeks ago and he seemed 100% like his normal happy self. That is how I will remember him. As I understand it however, he may live a few hours or a few months in a coma. This is a huge loss for the whole InfoAge community.

      Evan,

      Sorry to hear that news. Larry obviously had some health problems, but he
      always was approachable and extremely helpful. The guy just seemed to know
      everything or who to ask. He is a major asset at InfoAge.
