He married JoAnne Litton on February 8, 1979. They had one daughter, Loren. He was overjoyed to become a grandfather in November 2022.

Larry had three careers before retiring in 2012. He worked for the Bank of Dickson for 20 years and Fussell’s Men’s Shop on Main Street for 19 years. He then found his calling as a history teacher. He began work as an adjunct professor during his time at Fussell’s and taught high school history for 13 years. He was devoted to his students and brought history to life for them.

Larry loved life. He was an avid golfer and photographer. He especially loved documenting his extensive travels with his family.

Most significantly, Larry loved his church, his family, and his friends. He brought joy and smiles to everyone he met, including the doctors and nurses in the last week of his life.
