Larry attended school in Fairfax and he was a proud 1965 graduate of the Fairfax Red Devils. Larry married his high school sweetheart, Dottie Culbertson, April 23, 1966 in the First Christian Church of Fairfax. In September of 1966, Larry answered the call from his country and entered the U.S. Air Force serving 4 years with a tour of duty in Thailand. Upon his honorable discharge, Larry and Dottie moved to Ponca City. Larry accepted a position with Rush Metals in Billings, OK.

After leaving Rush Metals and moving to Ponca City, he worked for Air System Components for 15 years retiring in August of 2012. After retirement, Larry's enjoyment of life went to a new level when he was able to spend more time working on the Kizziar farm in Pawnee County near Masham, OK raising Black Angus cattle.
