As he grew into the man he was today, Larry was a former resident of Joshua, Texas and was a loan officer for many years and retired from Chase Bank One. During his down time, he had a special passion for football and his favorite team was the Dallas Cowboys. He had a love for classic car shows, playing card games and dice, sitting back and watching a good action filled movie or old-time western was a nice cozy hobby he had.
