    Larry was a man you could trust. Every trip to Missouri he would provide us with whatever we needed. The world lost a hero, a father, and the king of Piedmont, Missouri that day.

    He was so interesting to hear, always had an amazing story to tell. Whether it was about war or rides, I was always eager to hear more. His barn is something I hope I never forget, and his hospitality and selflessness is something that will stick with me forever.

    Ride high, Larry Trowbridge.
