About me

Larry and his wife, Dershie (who is a writer), have three children: Brandon (speech pathologist who has three children of his own), Trenton (works in the film industry) and Kendal (works at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC).

His interests include spending time at his second home on Dewees Island, near Charleston, SC. Larry is Past President of the Deedee Paschal Barrier Island Trust, a 501(c)(3) foundation he helped found to encourage the study and preservation of barrier islands like Dewees.

A skier and avid fly fisherman, Larry is known to be AWOL during a western snowstorm or the mayfly hatch. Since his three children have (allegedly) flown the coop, he and his wife enjoy travel but are always seduced back home to be near their grandchildren.
