After 44 years of exemplary service, including tenures at the tender assist drilling groups of Robray Offshore, Smedvig Asia, Seadrill and Energy Drilling, Larry looks forward to enjoying time with family, friends and the great outdoors from the African savannah to mighty rivers of Alaska.

Marcus Chew commented, “Larry is a true gentleman and a man of high integrity. He is one of the few industry veterans able to manage difficult situations with calm resolve. In all my time with Larry I have never once heard him raise his voice or speak poorly of a colleague”.
