Larry Sims Announces Retirement

Larry Sims

Larry Sims has been the face of Beachcombers to our customers in Southwest Florida for many years. Larry is known for his customer service, friendly disposition, hard work and dedication. His customers love him and he will be sorely missed by both his Beachcombers family and his customers.

Larry and his wife, Sandra, are looking forward to spending some well-deserved time together, traveling, gardening and relaxing. It is bittersweet for his Beachcombers family, including Harry, Leslie, Nancy, Betsy, the salesmen and employees. We are very excited for Larry but hate to see him go. We wish them wonderful adventures and fun in the future. Thank you, Larry for your service, friendship and work! You will be greatly missed!
