How I’d like to be remembered…. Anyone who knew me knows I was not a rainbows and song birds kind of guy. I was a guy who enjoyed a cold beer on a hot day sitting on the dock watching the waves roll on the lake. I was a guy who preferred mud on my face and bugs in my teeth from racing down the track in my car or on the open road on a motorcycle. I was the kind of guy who enjoyed quite times on the patio talking to my daughter about everyday things. I was the kind of guy who enjoyed hitting the road with my wife in our RV. I was a big softie when if came to animals and always loved spending time with my old boy Smokey in our man cave. I loved my family, my friends ,my pets and my wheels….. That’s how I want to be remembered. Larry Makinson October 11, 1945 - May 2, 2018
