From the 1955 Lucky Bag:
Larry was lost on October 1, 1959 when his F3H Demon fighter broke through a landing cable aboard USS Ticonderoga (CVA 10) and his aircraft plunged into the sea. The ship was operating somewhere in the Pacific at the time; she was on a Western Pacific deployment later in the month.
He was a member of Fighter Squadron (VF) 112. Unable to find a burial or memory marker.
From researcher Kathy Franz: "His wife was Josephine, and his mother was E. Louise."
