Obituary

LARRY L. FINES, USAF (retired) 3/13/1949 (New Boston, Texas) - 9/2/2009 (Independence, Mo.) Master Sgt. Larry L. Fines, 60, passed away Wednesday, September 2, 2009, after a protracted battle with cancer.

After his retirement from civil and military service he continued working as a tax accountant for Sprint and Embarq. He was a member of American Legion Post 189 and served as American Legion departmental finance officer for many years and also served in numerous other positions with the American Legion at both the state and local level.
