Larry graduated from Dublin High School in 1969. He attended the University of Georgia and graduated from Georgia College at Milledgeville in 1983. Larry spent his adult life working in sales, ultimately selling real estate with Homestead Properties for the past twenty-five years in the northwest Georgia area, “helping families find the RIGHT home” serving hundreds of families in Bartow County and northwest Georgia throughout that time. Larry’s two loves in life were his family and his music. He played excellent guitar for anyone who would listen and he made up for in enthusiasm what he lacked in singing talent.

His interests were in the arts and sciences and his love of knowledge was lifelong. A celebration of Larry’s life will be held on April 9, 2022, from 4-7 p.m. at Grand Oaks, 302 W. Main St., GA 30120. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society, the Atlanta Community Food Bank, or any non-profit.
