Board Vice President
In have been a nurse for over 40 years. I also run two businesses from my home. I have learned greatly in this position, Director on the Board for Western Lane Ambulance District, over the last four years. I have held high my knowledge that we have a GREAT Ambulance District and that the service that is provided to this community is unsurpassed. I strive to uphold that standard for our community through serving on the board. WLAD is something to be very proud of. Honesty and integrity are the most important standards that I hold for myself, and the people and organizations that I work with.
After growing up in Corvallis and completing my formal education at Oregon State University, I moved to Florence to take the opportunity to manage the local Sprouse Reitz store. It was in Florence that I met my wife Jana. We have two wonderful children, three grandchildren, a dog, many cats and a bird. Currently I work as a Commercial Relationship Manager with Oregon Pacific Bank. I’ve been with the bank since 1998. In my spare time I enjoy cycling, running, golfing and bowling.
I have served on the board of Western Lane Ambulance since 2005. Prior to that I served on their strategic planning and budget committee and budget committees. I have also filled the District’s seat on the Florence Urban Renewal Committee. I have served on that committee since 2007.
Larry was elected to the Board of Directors in 2017. He is a retired Boing 787 Captain on international routes for United Airlines. Larry previously worked in Hospital Financial Administration and has an MBA from Pepperdine University. He is married to Crystal and they have four adult children and 15 grandchildren. Larry and Crystal own and operate Heceta Self Storage. He enjoys flying, hiking, camping, travel, scuba diving, riding motorcycles, and other fun outdoor activities that he hopes will never require any emergency response from the excellent Paramedics and EMS responders at Western Lane Ambulance District.
I graduated college from the University of Portland with a degree in accounting and worked as a CPA in Portland for five years at an international CPA firm. My wife Jane and I moved to Florence in 1982 and I was partner at the CPA firm of Davis, Yecny and McCulloch in Florence and Reedsport for 18 years when I changed career path and was hired as the Chief Financial Officer for Peace Harbor Medical Center and eventually became the Chief Executive Officer/Chief Administrative Officer until retiring from Health Care in January of 2018. I now work part time as a CPA at Holloway and Associates in Florence. I am also a Board Member at Oregon Pacific Banking Company and Board Member and Treasurer for the Friends of Florence cancer van transportation services.
