Larry "Swoop" Romanchych (born September 7, 1949 in Vancouver, British Columbia) is a retired professional ice hockey player who played 298 games in the National Hockey League with the Chicago Black Hawks and Atlanta Flames. After playing 10 years in the NHL, he retired at the age of 29 from professional hockey.

In 1979, Romanchych founded Crescent Moving & Storage, Ltd. in White Rock, British Columbia which was named after Crescent Beach. He started the company with one five-ton truck which he would drive, and claimed to use the same values of integrity, honesty and hard work that he used during his NHL career.
