To the world of the signalling enthusiast I would say that Larry was, possibly, the greatest. Why do I say this? Well, because without him this forum probably wouldn't exist for a start. As I understand it, it was his idea to try and promote a society to cater for those interested in signalling and, fortunately, his colleagues John Morris, George Pryer, David Wittamore and David Collins agreed. The rest, as they say, is history.
Founding that society was fundamental to the growth of interest in signalling because, for the first time ever, it provided a vehicle for signalling enthusiasts to come together and share ideas, experiences and information. If it had never been formed I suspect that most of us would be pursuing our interest as 'loners,' unaware of the large number of like-minded people out there.
Yes, Larry was a great character and raconteur and a mine of information. But the fact that we have all been brought together in the way we have must surely be his greatest legacy.
