His Dallas co-star, Brenda Strong, released this statement today: “Being able to work with one of my childhood idols was a dream come true. He
was one of the most resilient and positive people I’ve ever known. Larry’s tremendous talent and contribution as an artist is only surpassed by his gigantic heart and how beloved he was by his friends, especially Patrick and Linda. He is a one of a kind and will be deeply missed. My heart breaks for his family’s loss. Quite honestly, I can’t believe he is gone. He lived life to the fullest and was the embodiment of the term ‘light hearted.’ He was and will continue to be an icon in our hearts and minds.”
