    This is a very sad day for all of us brothers and sisters in California Dept. of Corrections. Larry looked out for all the families of fallen correctional officers when no one else did. He made people aware that we are victims also and those who gave the “ultimate” price for our profession mattered. He helped families in their time of need when we had no one else to turn to, myself included. There is a place in heaven for Larry that’s for sure. Our deepest condolences to his family and his lovely wife “Char”.
