Larry, aka Poppy to his grandchildren, loved the outdoors. Starting at an early age he loved to travel and being in nature. He shared his love of camping with his family and traveled to most National Parks, his favorite being Zion National Park. He enjoyed vacationing with his grandchildren especially their trips to Hawaii and Alaska. In Hawaii you could find him sleeping on the lanai and in Alaska spotting wildlife at Denali.

Larry also enjoyed hunting with his friends and family. Texas deer season was a big deal in his household. He also hunted out of state in both Wyoming and Colorado. Even when physically, he could not hunt, he still went just to be with friends. He enjoyed gambling and shared his wealth with Texas, Nevada, Louisiana and California Casinos. He enjoyed good barbeque and cheap red wine and always loved the company of others. Larry showed his faith in God by being active in several Lutheran Churches his whole life and cherished his church family. When his body could no longer travel nor hunt, he enjoyed sitting on his front porch watching the purple martins and hummingbirds.

Memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 15, 2024, at St. Mathew Lutheran Church – Sandy Hill at 1:30 p.m. with burial to follow.
