Larry attended Oil City Elementary and Junior High School and graduated from North Caddo High School where he played football.

He spent many years in the banking profession in Shreveport, Bossier City, Mansfield, Little Rock and Waldo, Arkansas, where he became owner and president of the Bank of Waldo. Later in life he enjoyed a career in sales at Commercial Power Equipment.
His greatest accomplishment in life would be raising two fine children, Christen and Brooks. His great purpose was supporting them. He especially loved being at every ballgame that Brooks played from T-ball days to college days.
Larry also had a passion for reading and learning. Topics of deep interest were history (particularly Louisiana history), economics and politics. He valued education highly and continued learning by often enrolling in online courses.
He was generous and fun-loving. His grilling and barbequing skills were appreciated by family and friends who feasted on his barbequed ribs and chicken.
