We Remember

"Up, up the long delirious burning blue; I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace.

Where never lark, or even eagle flew; And while with silent, lifting mind I've trod

The high, untrespassed sanctity of space; Put out my hand, and touched the face of God."

JOHN GILLESPIE MAGEE JR. '40, FROM THE POEM "HIGH FLIGHT"

Born November 25, 1945 in Hartford and raised in Meriden, he was the son of the late Sidney and Charlotte (Ticotsky) Brick. Larry was a graduate of Avon Old Farms School, Marietta College, and Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. His passion for helping others was unmatched, reflected in the kindness with which he approached everything both personally and professionally.
