Tom,

Thanks for the info. Yes, LaRue was a great guy...I know many of the old-timers here will miss him.



If you find out any more information about the funeral date, location, etc..please post it. I would like to send flowers and a sympathy card to his wife Rose and their son.

We are currently in Florida. If the funeral is around the time we are heading north, we will make a calling to show our respect.

"LaRue the Key Guy" was always willing to help anyone with advice and his knowledge. Truly one of the good guys on the forum. Mahalo & Aloha LaRue.

LaRue was such a nice man and helpful to many of us on the ST site. My prayers and deepest sympathy to Rose and her family during this very difficult time.

Some where way to close to the effen city
A couple months ago I was looking to see when he last posted and it had been quite some time. LaRue set me up with some keys when I bought my Sport Trac and gave me some advice when I was getting ready to take a locksmith course. He was always very polite and very helpful. My sincere condolences go out to Rose and the rest of his family. He was a truly great human being!!

So sorry to hear this. He had one of the nicest Gen 1 Tracs I've ever seen.

Sad to hear. Very helpful guy and a fellow US Air Force retiree. Terrible to happen at Christmas. My grandfather died on Dec 25th and for many years it was a sad holiday.
