Dr. Darden – I know that you have mentioned Larry on this board before - so I will assume that you know him (he passed away some years ago).
He and I were very good friends for many years - and still would be if he was around. He lived and worked in DeLand, Florida for the telephone company – and was an avid power lifter & bodybuilder. He had a gym on his property when he lived in Daytona Park Estates in DeLand - and quite a few of us worked out there. Pretty big collection of barbells, dumbbells, Airdyne exercise bikes and weight machines (mostly all Nautilus and a Universal machine).
Dr. D, were you ever at his gym that I am talking about? I know that he had several other famous bodybuilders there from time to time - including Arnold and Franco. Please let us know if you had any interactions with him; I would love to read about them.
He was a great guy and I really miss him. We had many very interesting conversations. I think that his widow still lives in the area.
