Don’t you dare call him Lawrence! Larry was a fierce protector. As an officer of the law, of his family and dear friends he considered family - he saw it as his duty to protect and serve. He was the most sensitive tough guy you would ever meet. His grandchildren adored him, his children looked up to him and his wife cherished him. “Words are words” - Larry Gleba. His family will receive friends in celebration and remembrance on 9/11/2019 from 4pm-8pm with his final salute at 7pm at Kindrich-McHugh Steinbauer Funeral Home in Solon OH.
