Larry Sawyer was the adoptive father of Peyton Sawyer Scott who raised her alone after the death of his wife Anna. He was often away because of his work but he and Peyton maintain a close relationship and talked frequently. He was very over-protective of his daughter and, to an extent, her best friend, Brooke Davis as well.
Larry came back home after Peyton was shot. He stayed for a longer time to take care of her. He began to develop a bond with Lucas Scott.
Larry continued working away to earn money for himself as well as his daughter when she left to pursue a career in L.A.
His career led to him very rarely returning to Tree Hill and living mainly on boats. This also led to him missing his daughter's wedding and the birth of his granddaughter
