The cancer was a suprise. They found it during the surgery. We were all shocked and devistated to hear it. We were so proud of him. Our famous relative. He was a real riot.
Robbman wrote:I was pretty confused at first. Wondered if they had the wrong guy. That obituary describes him as being from Maryland.. sounds like he went to school locally. But the IMDB page doesn't mention Maryland and seems to imply that he grew up in Ireland and when he moved to the U.S, he lived elsewhere. I wonder who's wrong?
Has an identical twin brother, Hank, who's a self-published writer, but no other siblings. His parents, Henry and Celeste Howlin, are both retired and still reside in Ireland. Moved to Yakima, Washington in 1989, and then spent the next three years driving back and forth across the United States, living in his pick-up truck with his dog, Wendy. Moved to San Pedro, California in February 1993, and began acting full-time in Hollywood.

It's entirely possible that IMDB is just wrong, but just curious if anyone here knows anything different. I'm inclined to believe the obituary, as its official.. just thought it was strange that IMDB was so far off base with his personal history.
They fixed it on IMDB. You can check it out now. it always irritated me that it was wrong but Larry got a kick out of giving people bogus history about his past. he thought it was funny. I remember posting something on imdb about it being wrong but larry said to just let it be. And no we're not related to William Holden the actor. He's lived all over the place but we're from baltimore. He was married to the nicest hand model (more currently fashion designer) named Hanne. They were very happy. he was our family's pride and joy.
