Shreveport, LA - Visitation in honor of Larry Hughes will be held from 2 until 4 p.m. on Saturday, November 10, 2018 at Osborn Funeral Home, 3631 Southern Avenue, Shreveport, LA, 71104. Larry passed away on Wednesday, November 7, 2018, at his home after a lengthy illness.

Larry was born in Kansas City, Missouri in 1940, and was a resident of Shreveport for 37 years. He graduated from Central Missouri State University with a bachelor's degree in business.

He utilized his degree working in the retail business for over 45 years, as a buyer, merchandise manager, and as a store manager for retail department stores in Missouri, Arkansas and Louisiana. His retirement years included singing in the church choir, exploring the outdoors, leading Boy Scout Troop #92, volunteering at Meals on Wheels, and as a volunteer tutor at Arthur Circle.

Mr. Hughes was preceded in death by his mother, Mary L. Hughes and father, James C. Hughes. He is survived by Jan, his wife of 53 years; one daughter, Lori Hughes Garrett-Hatfield and husband, James; and granddaughter, Mary Elizabeth "Meg" Garrett, all of Athens, GA; two sons, Jeffray Walsh Hughes, and wife, Mylea; and grandchildren, Alexis Marie Hughes, Kyle Walsh Hughes, and Brodie Walsh Hughes, all of Seattle, WA, and Jason Walsh Hughes of Shreveport, LA. He is also survived by three sisters, Judy Hughes (Grandview, MO), Nancy DiGeorge (Belton, MO), and Susan Huffman (Belton, MO); nephews, Christopher Huffman, Stephen DiGeorge, and Tim Huffman; and one niece, Nanette DiGeorge.

Larry's legacy is his unwavering love and commitment to his family. His life exemplified love, truth, and legendary stubbornness. His family will miss him dearly and look forward to their homecoming in Heaven.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Paul Rushing, Dr. Robert Martin, and the Staff of Southern Care Hospice for their exceptional, attentive care not only during Larry's illness, but also as support for our family.

In Lieu of Flowers, the family wishes donations to go to Meals on Wheels/Caddo Council on Aging, 1700 Buckner Street, #240, Shreveport, Louisiana 71101.
