Larry was a fun guy. I spent 3 days at the farm in the Spring of 1971.
Along with his father, Larry and I drove tractors, chases pigs, shot pool and drank a lot of beer.
It was a delightful and memorable experience.
Larry, you will be missed.

Larry was a funny, intelligent and caring guy. He knew the ins and outs of the airline business. He also knew people and how to treat them with respect. He will be missed.

After I transfered to TUS, I invited Larry to come down in the winter to spend a few day in the warm weather. Well when he got of the airplane, he had his galoshes on and I bust out laughing and asked him why didn't you leave them in the ready room. Spent many a nights sleeping on his couch in his trailer, including 4 nights in the late 60's during the big snow storm that closed ORD. Never forget

I worked with the Kruser back in the 70's and 80's, of course, at O'Hare
Airport. There was only one Larry and though I haven't seen him in years'
he will be missed. His name came up often when a bunch of us would get
together and we wondered how things were going back on the farm.

May Larry rest well and farm to his heart's content..........Tony

My (now) wife, Annie, and I worked with Larry in the early 1970's at O'Hare Field while we were all gate agents for American Airlines. Those times, now so long ago, were special and many of our mundane and quiet times (though few and far between at the, then, world's busiest airport) were made unforgettably hilarious working with Larry. His "Big Ears" transfer letter was and will always be an all-time classic and it's an understatement to say his coworkers
