Larry was our preacher at Watonga. He was a very kind and sensitive person. He visited my father while my dad was in the hospital at OKC. We were blessed by his comforting words and presence. I will never forget his smile and his friendly demeanor and always putting others first. Heaven is lucky to have him. He will be missed. Love to the family. ❤️

Kelly and family, Please accept our heartfelt condolences the passing of Larry. God has taken him home and made him well. I met Larry in seminary. We were in the same districts for years. W we worked a lot of Church camps together. I was co-dean and Norma, was camp nurse, at some of the camps. He was such a servant to 1000's of youths and also his local churches. Some once said, upon the death of a loved one, "God finally caught his eye."
Larry was God's good and faithful servant. Always active. Deeply devoted. Sincere in every word and deed. God finally caught his eye and beckoned him home for well-deserved, eternal rest. May you find comfort. in knowing that Larry, I s the arms of his Savior, Jesus Christ. We cannot be there for his celebration of life, but we are there in spirit. In Christ, Rev, George, Norma and RebeccaRead more
