    I loved Larry’s stories and the venison dinners. We spent many birthdays together, the 4 of us, Larry’s wine and Keith’s readings. Many movies, dinners, concerts, plays, baseball and football games. I will miss him, his wit and laugh. Rest peacefully.

    Larry’s spirit will be very much missed His ability to lighten your load by finding the humor was amazing.
    He cared very much about the people in WICS and the organization. I love the fact that he was interested in the outdoors and the arts. We shared many happy times and there is a big hole in my life. Peace my good friend.

    Hello. I just found out Larry passed away. So sorry for his family and close friends. I moved away quite some time ago.

    I used to work for Larry as his assistant back in, oh, let’s see….what years were they… somewhere between 1995 and 1999 I think? What a character he was! He loved to laugh, and he loved helping people. On occasion, he’d take me and his agent, Carol Hedman, out to lunch at a Seattle waterfront restaurant. He’d buy us lunch and we’d talk and laugh.

    One time, at Christmas time, he bought a coat for Carol and a cozy sweater for me. For secretary’s day, he once bought me a bouquet of roses. In real estate as his assistant, he kept me really busy! I loved working with all of the people we leased the offices to as well.

    He kept one of his bears in the little conference room… one day, he casually mentioned, “Hey, Connie, the bear is getting a little dusty….” Ha ha!!! Carol came charging out of her office and said, “Larry Dixon! Connie is NOT going to vacuum your bear!” Ha ha ha!!! Oh, what a good laugh we got out of that! She said, “That bear needs a PROFESSIONAL cleaning, not your assistant to just dust him!”

    He was very proud of his accomplishments in being an avid hunter. I’ll never forget that deer hanging on the wall over my head all those years…. (We decorated it for Christmas one year, though Larry was not too shy about letting us know that wasn’t quite proper.)

    He really enjoy the friendships he had with everyone in the building and was a very generous person with many people who came in the door.

    God bless his family. My mom passed away two years ago. I know it’s hard to lose a loved one. May you cherish the good memories you have.
