Also proceeding him in death- his mother Beulah, his father Loy and his beloved son Loy Leon Lawrence. Larry leaves family who will miss him. His daughter- Lora and husband Rick.

Memories Timeline


  1. CandleImagePapa was once one of my closest friends. I love him very much and I’m sad to say goodbye. I will always cherish the good times, his laugh, his humor, and his love for goofy commercials. I pray that in his moments of lucidity in the end he cried out to Jesus. I sure would like another hug one day.

  2. CandleImageDad was the best father in law in the world I will miss him dearly he was funny and full of love and life he loved his family fiercely and I will see him again one day I love you DAD

  3. CandleImageI have many fond memories of my Great Uncle Larry. His funny phrases and expressions still linger. We always enjoyed spending time with him and our cousins Loy and Laura at Grandma Beulah’s house in Johnston City. Uncle Larry was always entertaining and always genuine. He is greatly missed.
