He graduated from Hull-Daisetta High School and furthered his study at Texas A&M, at College Station where he earned a degree in accounting. Larry also had a desire to further his knowledge of the Bible. After a trip to the Holy Land, he enrolled in Criswell Center for Biblical Studies in Dallas and graduated with a Master of Arts in Biblical Studies.
He began his career as an accountant for Superior Oil Company in Houston. Later, he joined his dad in the insurance business at Taff Insurance Agency in Daisetta and finished his work career at the Liberty County Auditor’s Office.
Larry loved spending time at his local church, Central Baptist Church where he was a devoted member, supporting the local “Bobcats” where he assisted in pressbox activities and supporting and attending local community activities.
