  • Mr. Larrimore was my scoutmaster for 4 or 5 years in the 1970’s. I crossed paths with him again about 15 years ago at Salem Church. He responded very graciously when I introduced myself and thanked him for putting up with a smart aleck like me for all those years. I remember his smile and his laugh and how much he enjoyed scouting. He was a blessing to a lot of boys.
    My sincere condolences to the Larrimore family.
