Rest in peace, Mr. Larry

Mr. Larry passed away on February 23, 2015. He started volunteering at Pauline Robinson Branch Library when it opened in 1996, and started volunteering for Denver Public Library in 1995. He just recently slowed down at the end of 2014. Mr. Larry was particularly committed to educating our youth. Over the years, he helped many students, young and old, with their math homework, and performed many other duties around the library. He became the face of Pauline Robinson Branch Library, within the library and in the community. He will be missed.

We celebrated Mr. Larry's life today. Several of his family members, local and out-of-towners, stopped by the library to tour the branch and see where he spent his time.

At the conclusion of Mr. Larry's funeral service, the family played "At Last" by Etta James. This classic, which is a standard at many weddings, was a pleasant surprise, and brought a smile to many attending the service. Rest in peace, Mr. Larry. You will be missed.
