Larry provides solutions as a Service Advisor at Key Hyundai of Milford.  Larry has been in the automotive business for 27 years!  It’s hard to believe because he looks so young.  Larry stays fit by running and working out.  He ran the Hartford Marathon in 2009 and he’s currently training for a 1/2 marathon in New Haven on Labor Day.

Larry was an employee of the Milford dealership when Jeff and I bought it from our father in 2009.  He’s worked for Key Hyundai for 9 years. We are grateful that he has stayed on with us.  He loves his job because of all the customer and employee contact he has.

Larry spent 9 ½ years in the Navy and has traveled many places, including France, China, Amsterdam and Italy.  Larry would love to have the opportunity to learn to speak Mandarin Chinese someday.  When asked if he could be anything in the world, he commented, “a college graduate.”  I say, go for it!  It’s never too late.  He would also love to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro and go on a safari.  He loves active vacations in strange lands.

Larry’s true pride and joy are his family.  His daughter is 20 and a senior at St. Lawrence University in New York.  She is a Political Science major.  His son, is 17, and just started his freshman year at the University of Notre Dame.  He is an Engineering major and just got chosen to be part of the marching band.  Sports are huge at Notre Dame so that is a big deal!  Larry has been married to his wife for 22 years.  When you talk to Larry about his family, you can see the pride and love that he has for them.  It’s very refreshing nowadays!

Larry is truly a great guy!  If you get a chance, stop into the Milford service department and say hello.
