The mission and doings of Seamark Ranch and their work with and for children and exposing them to agriculture is why the State Women’s Leadership Committee chose Seamark to receive such a signifi cant donation.” said Michael Rogalsky, the Young Farmers and Ranchers and Women’s Programs Coordinator for Florida Farm Bureau.

He was raised on a farm and attended at one-room schoolhouse. His high school was six miles from his home, and he rode a horse to and from school. He graduated in 1927, decided he didn’t want to be a farmer, and worked several jobs for a little spending money. In 1928, Larry got married and went to work in a factory for $3.75 a day. In 1932, Larry had a mail route and drove 120 miles every day except Sunday. Gasoline then was 11 cents/gallon. He rented a house for $8.00 a month, and his car payment was $35.00 a month. He said he didn’t have much money to live on, but he had a job while others were unemployed. Larry credits his long life to working hard, eating good food, not drinking or smoking, and he has good genes. He said he always did a man’s job, starting when he was 15. As Larry turns 104, he is enjoying life on the banks of the beautiful St Johns River in Orange Park, Florida. Larry came to Moosehaven on April 25, 2006 and enjoys life every day. He can be seen walking and/or riding his trike around campus daily, and always wears a big smile. Please help us in wishing this special man a very big Happy Birthday!!
