Larry was a member of Riley’s Creek Baptist Church. He loved his his country, serving with honor and distinction in the US Marine Corps during the Cuban Crisis. As a marine he was "one of the few" and "the proud". As a chosen career, Larry was a truck driver and for over 30 years was owner of his trucking company, L & M Trucking.

First and foremost Larry loved his family, especially his grandchildren, who he enjoyed riding on his motorcycle and teaching life skills. His outgoing personality won him many friends weather on the golf course, just joking around with folks or out for a ride on his motorcycle. Larry’s departure leaves an empty place at our family table and in our hearts.
