Sad news that Larry James died Thursday (on his 61st birthday). We received news a few days ago about an opportunity to buy a DVD of the incredible event honoring Larry's career held last year. More on the event here:

DVD of Event Honoring Larry James
We wish to thank those who attended and contributed to the exciting extravaganza, G. Larry James, Four Decades of Excellence. The salute generated a tremendous amount of goodwill and Larry wishes to express his gratitude and appreciation for the love and encouragement expressed by those who attended as well as those who could not be there in person but expressed their suport through correspondence and telephone calls.
As he noted at the event, Larry holds a blank thank you check to everyone who participated in making it an exciting day. The breadth of diversity at the gathering and the inclusive representation from virtually every segment of his life was truly inspirational.
The extravaganza has generated $40,000 thus far for the G. Larry James Legacy Fund, dedicated to benefit Richard Stockton College students. The ultimate objective is to create an endowment which would perpetuate the G. Larry James Legacy. In this regard, the Office of Athletics and Recreation is offering a DVD entitled G. Larry James, Four Decades of Excellence which includes the event that occurred on December 1, 2007 at the Sports Center on the Stockton's campus. The event attracted 1000 people. Presentations of Larry’s friends and family, including his Olympic family, are included as well as a special section on Larry’s lifetime achievements narrated by Stockton’s own Dr. Franklin O. Smith. Finally, included as well, are thank you comments and expressions of gratitude by Larry.
This DVD may be obtained for a minimum donation of $40.00 and may be obtained online at the following address www.stockton.edu/gljlegacyfund or by calling 609-626-3604.
