Lare, Lare Bear, Lala, Larry-ana. He is a former Chess Club President. And, fluent in Mohawk (kinda, sorta). He has the best sock drawer in the entire 905 (he likes to think that he was the sock world disruptor, actually). His trademarks: a fist pump, photo-bombing, and a laugh so big and unrestrained we bet you five bucks you won’t laugh, too. If he could only bring one thing to a desert island, it would be gum – that is correct. Oh yes, did we mention he is fun?
