He confessed his life to Christ at New Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Painter, Virginia. He was always willing to help others, especially the elderly. Larry truly loved his family, especially his wife. He loved to host and attend family gatherings.
Larry loved music and dancing, however riding his bike was dearest to his heart. He was a fun and happy person and was a joy to be around. When he walked in a room it was never a dull moment, you were bound to get some laughs.
