Larry was born on June 17, 1971, in Geneva and was a son of Patricia (Dunham) Guererri and the late Frank Guererri. He graduated from DeSales High School, Class of 1989. Larry worked as an outside salesman at 84 Lumber in Geneva for 25 years and was very well-known among his clients. He was a man of his community. Larry had a passion for coaching, starting as DeSales High School football coach, then owned and coached the Five Lakes Hawks football team and was currently the head coach for the Geneva Panthers football team. Larry was the past president for the Geneva Little League, softball, Junior Panthers Football, and oversaw basketball for the Boys & Girls Club. Not only was he a committed and loving family man, he loved all children in the surrounding communities and would jump at the opportunity to coach any child in need, even if it was for the opposing team. Larry was a “Jack of all trades” and enjoyed starting renovations at his home.
