Out of his five kids, his 65-year-old son Andy passed away due to a sudden heart attack on July 28. His daughter Chaia, 51 died due to lung cancer on 20 August.

While the rest of the world is sulking over the virus, Larry’s sorrow hardly resonates with it. He further said in his post, β€œLosing them feels so out of order. No parent should have to bury a child. My family and I thank you for your outpouring of kind sentiments and well wishes. At this moment, we need a little time and privacy to heal. I thank you for respecting that.”
