After completing a residency in Emergency Medicine at William Beaumont Hospital, in Royal Oak, MI in 1990, Larry went to work in San Diego, California, for fifteen years, working at various hospitals as an Emergency Medicine Physician; mostly at Scripps-Mercy Hospital, a Level-1 trauma center in San Diego.
In San Diego County, there are many U.S. Navy and Marine Corps bases. In 1994, Larry joined the U.S. Naval Reserves. In the Naval Reserves, Larry worked as an Emergency Medicine Physician for twenty years, from 1994 to 2014. He worked at U.S. Naval hospitals on both the East Coast and West Coast, as well as overseas. Furthermore, Larry helped train Navy resident-physicians in Emergency Medicine.
While still in the Naval Reserves, Larry moved back to Michigan in 2005. Since then, he has worked as an Emergency Medicine Physician at different hospitals in both the Upper and Lower Peninsulas. He also teaches at Michigan State University’s College of Human Medicine (Medical School).
From his days at CC to the present, Larry has exemplified humbly and consistently what it means to be a man of Mary, Alma Mater. His live to serve, and not to be served approach to people and life is inspiring and worth acknowledgement.
Recently, Larry stated, “Catholic Central has remained a big part of my life. I am still good friends with classmates from CC. Since I moved back to Michigan, I have attended many different events at CC, such as football games, Christmas concerts, and Memorial Masses. I was very honored to receive the “Veteran of the Month” recognition from Catholic Central in November of 2019.”
