I too learned a lot from Larry. I worked 18 total years for Nu-Look Fashions. I became good friends with all of his family, both sides. Norma, my prayers go out to you and the Fannin & Deerfield family.

I found out my previous employer Larry Fannin of NuLook Fashions has passed away. My heart aches for not paying my last respects as I found out too late. I truly loved him. I appreciate all of the wisdom, kindness, patience and favor that was bestowed upon me. He was a true gentleman from the Kentucky hills who grew a multi-million dollar company from selling wigs out of the back of a van to manufacturing and wholesaling mens suits to small & large retailers nationwide...housing 250 k plus suits @ a time.... Enabled a way for even individuals to turn profits. Sales... He turned me onto the concept of its limitless reality. He was the best ... Most relentless salesman ever and smiled the WHOLE TIME! Bless his heart... SOMEHOW had me singing Bluegrass at our company Christmas parties....which always turned out to be really a set up for his mini concert....LOL! I'll always think of and remember him dearly.... RIHeaven Mr Fannin.... Already missed. Praying for his Wife... Son....and all of his family. May God bless and keep them as only he can... In Jesus' name I pray.
