Fountain Square Larry

   

This two-story portrait honors Larry Mires, aka “Fountain Square Larry,” born in 1941, who passed away on August 29, 2019 after a long battle with cancer.  Mires was a neighborhood legend, owning a record store in Fountain Square even though he was mostly deaf, and hanging out at the Peppy Grill almost every day.  Mires also repaired hot rods and motorcycles, although he had himself stopped riding years prior for safety reasons.  The portrait shows him with his signature gold “Larry” belt
