    I will never forget Larry. He was one of the nicest men I have ever met. He would bend over backwards for me. He always told me how nice my father was to him. But he paid it forward like a true gentleman by being super nice to me. RIP, my friend. ❤

    My sincerest condolences. I will always remember being a teenager and meeting Renee (his youngest daughter) to walk to school, or to go out at night. Mr Breda would always have a joke to tell, or tease me until I smiled, tell me my shoe was untied, and say made you look-always something to bring me cheer. His wife would always offer me some of her home baked desserts, insist I call her Delores, not Mrs Breda. They both were the epitome of loving parents and grandparents, how nice if all children and grandchildren should experience this kind of love. My heart goes out to his wife, children and grandchildren. Rest in Peace Mr Breda, God Bless.

    Aunt Dolores and cousins Rene and Lorna I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember uncle larry. he spoke to me many times in my youth about respect for others and corrected my behavior often with a slap to the back of the head. I had many great uncles,but uncle larry seemed to have the biggest influence on me. he would never let me get to cockey, even when i was home on leave from the Marines and full of confidence he would bring me down a peg, humble me a bit, which i feel helped me survive in Vietnam. I will always remember uncle larry.
