  3. sad news. sympathy to all beauvais. Don, just thinking of you at this sad time. sorry. Todd , your doubles partner and friend

  4. Beverly and Family,
    We were so sorry to read of Larry’s passing. He was too young and it must be difficult for you. May your special memories comfort you and may he rest in peace. God be with you in your grief.

  5. I met Larry about 17 years ago when I first transferred to Colorado Springs in the Air Force. His warm heart and big smile immediately let me know that I had found a good friend. Larry was always willing to listen and be there when you needed him. Although we would sometimes go 5 or 6 months between seeing each other, it always seemed like we had just talked, and it was always fun to catch up. A dear friend was taken too early from this world, but is smiling that big smile in a better place now. My prayers for comfort for Larry’s family. You will be missed my friend.

  6. Larry and I were high school friends. I was in his honored to be in his wedding. We grew up in karate together and generally palled around. More than
    once he made my nose bleed. He was always much much better than I was in the martial arts.

    But my fondest memory of Larry is also a sketch of his character. A young lady and I went to Beulah to go on a picnic. My car broke down so I called my father. My father refused to pick me up saying it was my car, my problem. I called Larry who dropped everything. He arranged to have my car towed, came to Beulah and picked me up. It seemed like such a small thing at the time, but as I grew up, I reflected on that moment many times. That was Larry. Anyone would be blessed to have a friend like that. That is how I will remember him.

    I extend my deepest sympathies to his children. God rest his soul.

  7. Praying God Sends His Love and Hope, Courage and Strength to Rest Upon and Within you, Beauvais family. That even as we mourn Larry’s absence we are Drawn Closer to God’s Heart Through The Love of His Son, Jesus Christ.-Will Bratina

  8. Our sympathy to the entire Beauvais clan for the loss of Larry. Larry may you rest in Peace free from the restraints of this world that you struggled so mightily with. To Jacqueline and Dustin…….know that your father loves you and continues to protect you from above and may you find peace and strength.
    Love and prayers
    Dan & Brenda

  9. My heartfelt sympathy to my daughter, Jacqueline & son Dustin and their amazing, beautiful grandmother, Bev; my forever dear friend. I pray peace over you at this time. My sympathy extends to all siblings with love.
