Passed away peacefully on December 1, 2016 after
a heroic three year fight with cancer. He is survived by his
beloved wife of 30 years, Stacie; his sisters and brother-in-law Devereaux
Raskauskas, Darcy Bonfils and Jim Bonfils (Andrea). Cherished nieces and nephews Jenn, Joseph and Carolyn Raskauskas, Alexandra and Lindsay Bonfils, Sara Sluhan Baer and John Sluhan. He was preceded in death by his parents Betty and Jerry Benes, his sister, Maryann Benes Sluhan and her husband, Elliott.
Larry lived life to the fullest. He was gracious towards all, the nicest, must fun loving person in any room. He approached everything with vigor and enthusiasm. We will remember him at the Potomac Hunt Races, teaching the kids how to place a bet, on the golf course at Farmington, fishing in the Florida Keys. He was an entrepreneur whose interests were varied and included broadcasting and real estate. Larry's family thanks the doctors, nurses and all caregivers at Hopkins Oncology, Inova Fairfax, Sibley, Suburban and the Washington Home Hospice. They took wonderful care of Larry which he appreciated so much. Special thanks to Larry's wonderful aide, Sam, who took beautiful care of Larry's every need while at home. All are living proof that there are truly angels on earth. There will be a memorial service at a later date.
