Larry was the owner of Orinda Tow. He joined our team to provide better service on both sides of the Caldecott Tunnel. Bob and Larry had known each other for over thirty years. Larry would ask Bob for assistance with a good recovery and Bob would always respond. Larry was a valuable asset to the company. He will truly be missed by many.
