Larry and I grew up together, and shared many fun times. He will be sorely missed.

For 4 years through the U of Md Dental School, Larry. Teddy Sobkov and I traveled together every day to school. We studied together and all graduated together. Larry & Teddy then went to graduate school for Periodontia and I did an internship in the Navy. Afterwards we all three opened private practices.

So sorry to hear about the loss of Larry & Teddy. Those were memorable years of my life. He will be missed, but never forgotten.

Dear Karen and Family,

We were so sorry to learn of Larry’s passing. Even though we didn’t see much of each other in the last few years, we always considered you to be two of our special friends. We have wonderful memories of having visits and dinners with you at the beach and we will cherish them always.

Please accept our most sincere condolences on your loss. Larry was a truly good and kind friend.

Our love to you all,
Lee and Jim Butera

We just attended the beautiful service for Larry. The eulogies were so heartfelt and moving and we appreciate being called last night and, although heartbreaking, could share this time with his family. Even though we hadn’t visited with Larry and Karen lately, we always considered them as good and true friends. How fortunate we were to have lived next to them at the beach for so many years. We still miss the visits and dinners we shared. Our sincere condolences to Karen and his family. Larry was a truly good and authentic man and he will be missed.

Dear Karen and Family, I was saddened to hear of Larry’s passing. My husband Jim and I spent several delightful times with you and Larry. Your hospitality is well known! Jim and Larry had a long friendship and even if, in the later years, they didn’t see each other as often as they had; they maintained their friendship the moment they were together again. I am now hoping the two of them have a reunion in The Beyond. May they both be blessed. Deep condolences to you Karen and to your family.

I was a student of Larry's at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry. He was an outstanding teacher. He was one of the few faculty members who treated his students with respect and we all respected him and were in awe of his body of knowledge. When I did my residency at Sinai Hospital, he was on the faculty there. The more I knew him the more I liked and respected him. I want to offer my heartfelt condolences to his family.

My name is Arleen Harrison Kessler. First let me extend my condolences to your family on the lost of your father Larry. I was saddened to read about his passing. Secondly, let me tell you who I am. Your grandfather, Ned Halpert, and my grandmother, Leah Halpert Raffel, were brother and sister: they shared the same father, Louis Halpert. Ned's mother was a second wife. Perhaps you recall Ceil Ginsburg and Ada Saxon. They too were siblings. My father was Bobby Harrison. Uncle Ned was one of our favorite people. Such a handsome, gregarious man. And Aunt Lil was a stunning woman. I was a much younger cousin to your father and had almost no contact. Reading about his passing left me with a feeling that I needed to connect with you all. May your memories be a blessing.

Dear Karen, Melissa, Harry, Heller and all of yours:
The clock turned back about 80 years to kindergarten days. Larry was truly one of my very first friends. And we remained close pals into our teens and even past Culver. School, playing, sleep overs and just about everything that close young guys do together. And even in later years, chance meetings were always warm and engaging. When the story of my own life is written, Larry will be there in the mix. We mourn with you and celebrate a life well lived.

What a horrible year this has been for me. First CVID-19 then the loss of Dr. Stanley Klatsky my study partner during Pharmacy School, now Dr Larry Halpert who was my mentor during Dental School & Periodontal training. He was a man of many talents. He was the consummate Periodontist that I always hoped to be. Due to the riots in Ballmore (now you know where I was born) in the late 1960’s I decide to open my practice in St. Petersburg, Florida. However, each time I visited my family the first thing I would do was to visit Larry in his office. Larry, I owe my periodontal carrier to you. I lost a mentor & mensch.
