The only reason to lace a 32h front wheel radially is looks. If you happen to like the look, go 3X rear/radial front. If not, stick with 3X on both (which will be beneficial if you're as big as you say you are).

i would go 36 hole 3x in the back for sure, very least 2x front for durability/stiffness for your weight

I'm 95kg, around 210 pounds and 3x rear works perfectly for me, done around 2500km before needed to true wheel a bit.
