I never met Larry in person but we had several dozen emails back n forth over several years.
He was very interested in my projects and we shared flow bench numbers between us on the smaller
motors (650/750) He was always very polite and had no issues on sharing his knowledge.
He was interested in what my local porting guy was doing for me. I never sent him any work
but shared what I had done so he could compare results.
Very sorry to hear of his passing, gone too soon.
