  1. It is a sad time . The last of Grandmas boys . I loved all of my Uncles and have very fond memories of each one . Larry Don instilled my appreciation of the woods and nature . He taught me to read animal tracks at a very young age ,as a preteen he built an authentic teepee had a german shepard as his friend of course that impressed his young niece who tagged along as much as she could . I was always intrigied by his adventures as an adult The boys would talk about Alaska the last frontier wouldnt it be great to go there, Larry Don did . He had a long and interesting life . Travel well Uncle we love you .

  2. This is a sad day all the Harbin boys are together again with Grandma an Grandpa. I miss my dad and all his brothers. I remember Larry Don when I was very young he would entertain us with juggling an tricks. Then he was off living his life. Larry Don you will be missed an Thank you for your service to this Great United States of America.

  3. Carol,
    I just learned of Larry Don, I am so sorry for your loss, he was a very kind man even though I only knew him for a short time. I pray for peace and love at this time after losing your brother in law.
    God Bless.
