Larry was quite the athlete.  He was a track star in my opinion.  I worked out with him alot during that time. He was also in my home room class my freshman year.  We became good friends.  Over the years we grew apart as he no longer participated in sports.  I'm not sure why he quit.  He was a sharp guy with a big smile.  Sad to hear of his passing.  I hope he had a great life.

One of my first grade school crushes. I didn't know until many many years later that he had a crush on me too. Remember he gave me a special 45 record for my 13 the birthday. Always wondered what happened to him. Hope he was able to reach his goals and have a good life.

I knew Larry Marker from Lincoln Heights grade school. He was a handsome kid with a big smile,and did  well in track, as he was a really fast runner. His mom was a single parent, since his dad had died (in a plane crash I think) when Larry was very young. She was viewed by us kids as "the cool mom" who let Larry have parties at their house on weekends. I think we were there alot in 7th and 8th grade. I especially remember Chris Jones, Mike Alward, Donna Stier, Bill Lund, and Larry being there. It was alot of fun and good memories.

Larry's dad was killed in the Fairchild Plane crash in 1957 or 1958.  It was before you came to LH Chris.  I think we were in the 4th grade.  Cpt. Marker came to our class earlier in the year to talk to us about his job.  Larry was very proud of his dad.  I remember the day so vividly.  Two Air Force officers came to the class to get Larry.  Larry was very strong and a survivor.  I saw him my senior year of college and he was on a cane.  I think he was hurt in Vietnam.  He was a trooper and a really good person.
