I am very sad about the death of Larry. My family lived close to his when he was growing up. We always thought highly of the Swanson family. His sister Merrilee and my daughter Konni were very close friends. I am thinking of all of Larry's loved ones at this time.

Larry's knowledge of art, jewelry and cars was unparalleled. He knew how to find amazing deals. He attended an estate sale in Eglon and bought a bronze statue for $75. It turned out to be one of only four by a renowned French artist and Larry made quite a profit. I enjoyed our occasional lunches together and he would regale me with his treasure hunts at various consignment stores around Kitsap and Jefferson Counties. He found amazing deals at the Habitat for Humanity store in Port Townsend! He also thoroughly enjoyed his time assessing art at the Rotary Auction or volunteering on the Poulsbo Art board. Larry loved a good deal, loved the beauty of our local area and thoroughly enjoyed life.

I met Larry when I joined the Board of the Cultural Arts Foundation NW many years ago. To discover we live less than a mile from him and his wife. We found that we had a lot in common, we both collect and appreciate art in all its forms. He would tease me every time he came to my home about selling him a wood nymph statue I had bought at an gallery in Switzerland many years before. Larry was a tireless member of our board, always ready with help, information and suggestions. Larry will be sorely missed by more people in our community than he could ever have imagined.
