Larry was always one of the few officers who welcomed me with open arms. I will always treasure his friendship and upbeat attitude.
May time heal the family's loss and find joy in your memories.

I am so sad for your loss and will pray for your family. Larry was one of those people that made this world brighter and more beautiful. When I worked at the police academy receptionist desk he would often stop to talk with me. Many times when I was having a rough day I would see him walking toward my desk with the biggest smile and he'd have a conversation with me in his kind and gentle way. Suddenly the day wasn't so overwhelming and I'd be back to my cheerful self just from the few minutes he was there. Larry had a sweet spirit and was such a friendly soul. He will be missed in this ole world and heaven is yet again all the sweeter.

Reading all the nice testimonials about Larry is a testament to what a genuine good and stand-up man he was. He leaves a great legacy to his family as witnessed by everyone's comments, something you don't see everyday.

I will always know and remember Mr Larry. I only spent about 7 months with him as a pt caregiver but we became such great friends. There’s probably not a morning that will go by that I won’t still hear his happy voice saying, “good morning!” I will forever remember this bright and sweet spirited man! Fly high with God and his angels Mr Ousley!

Larry was a friend to all. One of the rare people who was always smiling and never had a bad word about anyone. We worked together many times during our career. Nothing but good memories.

One of the nicest, gentle, and most pleasant men I knew during my many years on Lexington PD. It seems the good guys are sometimes gone far too soon. Condolences and blessings to his family and friends. Rest In Peace are in God's hands now...

Rest high bud. You are a mentor, a leader, and a prime example of what a police officer should be. RIP my friend and glad you are no longer suffering.

Larry was always smiling and would do anything he could to assist. From the days on the P.D. to the academy, he was never at a loss for words. He will be missed.

Larry was no doubt a class act! We had many good times going shooting driving from Lexington to rock castle county. He was one that I always saw living his life with the glass half full vs half empty!
RIP Larry!!
