Larry was a wonderful man of God with strong faith. He found joy in all of God’s creations. He was always smiling and you couldn’t help but smile back. He was known to crack jokes and tease the people he loved which resulted in many best friends.

His memorial service will be held at Abundant Grace Tabernacle, 972 Twin Creek Road, Kernersville, North Carolina 27284, on May 16 at 3 p.m.

The family will receive friends following the service at 2944 Swing Court, Winston Salem, North Carolina 27127.

The family would like to thank the services of Hospice & Palliative Care Center, especially Judy Johnson, Donna, Princilla McGee and Wale Abe for all the love and kindness they have shown. Larry and Sierra love you all.
