I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Larry! I appreciated the Beadles for giving me my first real job! I learned a lot in my 3 yrs working there! One of the funniest memories I can remember of Larry was, I worked on sunday about once a month. Larry would always come in to make sure all was going o.k. The meat cutter was either Gorden Snyder or Bill Vincent! They both would use the meat wrapper hot plate to cook either the stores made sausage or bacon. Larry would always give the meat cutter HECK for stinking up the store, till he seen how much bacon or sausage was sold at that time! Then he'd leave the back room in a huff and stop in front of the meat counter and tell the cutter keep up the good work!!!!!! We all got a good laugh at that! Larry will be remembered and missed!!!! Too the Beadles, may God bless u and watch over you all! Sending or LOVE! Terry & Lisa Waltemyer
