Although I never worked with Larry, I got to be friends with him when I was a pretty junior prosecutor with the Office. He was an investigator in Special Crimes and he couldn't have been any nicer or more inclusive. He loved the Office and he loved the people that he worked with. He was the embodiment of the feeling of family and camaraderie that made working at that place so special.
After we both left the Office, he had a series of horrible health setbacks that he was way too young to be dealing with. For a person as full of life as Boucher, it was heartbreaking to hear that he wasn't running full speed. He had heart problems and won a hard-fought battle against them. Sadly, it seemed that as soon as he finished that fight, he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia.
Larry's funeral will be on Wednesday, September 27th at 2:00 p.m. at the Klein Funeral Home at 9719 Wortham Blvd, Houston, TX 77065. A celebration of his life will be hosted at Floyd's Cajun Seafood at 27126 NW Freeway, Cypress TX 77433.
