Larry Staats
Larry Staats, grew up in Sandyville, Jackson County, WV.  After graduating from Gilmore High School, he moved to Columbus, OH and attended Ohio State University.  He graduated from Ohio State with a BA and a JD degree and with a commission in the Army of the United States.

He practiced law in Columbus, Ohio, and was a Bankruptcy Trustee until recently retiring.  He now entertains himself, and hopefully others, by telling stories about growing up in Sandyville, playing various old time musical instruments, and dancing old time percussive dance.
