Dear Rowing Friends:
We’re very sorry to have to inform you that our most fervent Purdue rowing alumnus and best friend, Larry Tolle, passed away this morning from a ruptured aortic aneurysm. Fortunately, it was over quickly, with minimal suffering. In fact, he had one last day with his family where he was alert, talking, and reminiscing about rowing events of the last 60 years.
Those of us who were fortunate enough to have had Larry as a teammate, coach, mentor or friend
We hope you’ll join us in remembering Larry as the shining example of what it means to be a teammate, whether in sports or in life. A life well lived, eternal rest well deserved.
