He gave his life to Christ at an early age and served in many capacities at First United Methodist Church of West Monroe, First Baptist of West Monroe and Emmanuel Baptist. He taught his children the value of a close relationship and life devoted to serving Jesus Christ.
Larry was an avid outdoorsman and his favorite times were spent hunting and fishing with his son, grandsons and friends.
