Larry was loved by many and was known for his contagious smile and laughter. Larry was a born again believer in Jesus Christ and absolutely loved sharing the story of his redemption. He was an active member of Calvary Missionary Baptist Church. He loved his church family and they loved him and have been so very instrumental in his life and care as he battled cancer.
