I went to school with Larry, and am just shocked and so saddened by this news. My prayers go out to his family and all of his friends.

Very sad day. I shared a home room in high school with Larry for four years and got to know him pretty well back then. We didnt keep in touch as much as I would have liked. He was about as smart as anyone I ever met and had a great sense of humor. RIP, Larry. You will be missed.

I met Larry a few times and had long conversations about math, physics, philosophy, life, etc. while walking in the woods. He was a brilliant and warm guy, and I'm honored to have met him.
