Larry and Shauna always treated us as family. He was a great leader for all of us in the car business. More importantly a real friend. God bless you Shauna.

Mr. Mantle was always so good to the kids in the neighborhood. He spent time talking to us, and being involved with youth sports. Us kids loved to spend time with him.

I remember taking my new Jeep over to show to him, I was so proud of it. Being a Chevy guy, he had to bust my chops. He was a fun person to be around.

Becky and I pray that his family will find peace in his memory. Larry is one of the good guys.

I worked with Larry about 10 years ago, at Quest. He was a sweet guy, and I really liked him. Im sad to hear he passed.

Dear Chris & Shawna,

So sorry to hear of your dear Dads passing.

Just about 2-3 weeks ago, my parents (Jerry & Sharlene) and I ran into your Mom & Dad at Morelias. So glad I was able to meet him for the first time. May god bless you all during this difficult time.

Take care,

Lisa
