Larry, who was affectionately known as “Steve” to his family and friends, spent his youth in Etoile, Texas and moved to Texas City with his parents when he was a young teenager. He graduated from Texas City High School.
Larry worked at Marathon Oil as an electrician for 30 years when he retired in 1996. He opened Larry’s Auto Sales in 1985 at the corner of Texas Ave and 21st Street where his used car hobby finally became a business that he loved. His wife Pat and son Travis worked alongside him until both of their passing’s.
Larry was soft spoken, kind and humble. He was a family man, who loved his kids and grandkids more than anything. Anyone who knew him felt his love and compassion. He was truly one of a kind. Larry loved Jehovah God and loved witnessing His Word. He knew that one day he would see his most loved who passed before him because of the promise and sacrifice Jesus made for us here on earth. Larry made a difference in so many lives and had a kinship with all whom he met. He will be dearly missed.
