In an interview with Variety, Simpsons co-producer Tim Long spoke about the reasons for the regular character’s death, which was not easy for those responsible themselves:

I’m sorry if some fans are upset, but we really wanted to use Larry’s death to show that even the most insignificant people in our lives have dignity and value and that we should not take anyone for granted.

He further explained the intention of the tragic episode:

The episode is about many things, but above all about the fear of death. Simpsons characters have always had unusually rich emotional lives and this episode is really about their fear of ‘what’s next’ (and I don’t mean ‘Krapopolis’). What I find bittersweet about this episode is that it It took Larry’s death to make Homer and his friends appreciate him – and each other.
