Was a great teacher, I had him for biology and I suffered with allergies and he would help me out. I also had his as my softball coach and he called me slugger. I was no bigger than a minute but he always encouraged.
Prayers for the family, he is was an awesome Man! I have a lot of wonderful memories...

My thoughts and prayers are with the Looker family. Larry was a great role model for many, many students and I enjoyed his friendship and encouragement when I started my principals career at Lanier. A good man who will be missed by many.

Im so sorry for your lost mrs. Looker. He was one of the best teachers in my life. I will always remember him and how he would buy us ice cream during class. I learned a lot from him. They broke the mold when he became a teacher

So sorry to hear about Larry. I have great memories of camping in Brookville and a vacation we all shared in Maine. Larry always seemed so upbeat and always had plenty of jokes to share. Keeping your family in my thoughts and prayers.

Truly my favorite teacher at Waynesfield-Goshen H.S. I have so many fond memories of him being our homeroom teacher for 3 years and Class Adviser. He always remembered helping us with decorating the gym for the Jr. Sr. Prom 1965.
I remember him waiting at the elevator at Good Samaritan Hospital in Dayton for me when I was a 1st yr. student in Radiology to come back from lunch and telling me his daughter was having a test done in x-ray. When I went upstairs, I got to help with her exam.
Also, he was doing drivers ed at his "new" school and stopped at my house in New Hampshire, Ohio. I probably had 3 kids by then... I was so excited, I went out to the car and was telling his students, "This is so cool that Mr. Looker stopped by and maybe when you are out of school, he will come see you with Driver Ed Students." They were like... What Ever! Ha Ha.Thank you, Judy, for coming to our 50th Reunion with Larry. Blessings and prayers to you and all of your families.

I am so sorry to learn of your dads passing. He was always such a sweet man. I remember seeing him swim the width of the West Alex pool under water holding his breath for several laps and coming up smiling. He was such an asset to the students that he influenced. My prayers for all of you that you find comfort in your faith, strength from your family and support from your friends.
