Larry Patrick

Larry Patrick, resident of Chandler, Texas, passed away unexpectedly on July 6, 2021, at the young age of 55, while doing what he greatly loved, fishing.  Larry Is survived by his mother, Anita Augustini; his daughters, Lauren Doan and Lacey Hollingsworth; sons-in-law, Matt Doan and Austin Hollingsworth; grand-daughters, Bella Maynard, Presley Maynard, Paisley Hollingsworth, and Rosalie Hollingsworth; sister-in-law, Celinda Patrick; niece, Alicia Stefka; nephews, Chris Patrick and Brian Stefka; great-nephew Colby Stefka; and great-nieces, Halle Stefka, Dakota Patrick, Kailey Patrick, Annaley Patrick, and Josie Patrick. Larry is preceded in death by his father, Prentiss Patrick, brother, Paul Patrick, sister, Cindy Patrick, maternal grandparents, Abe Hirson, and Jennie Bartrell, and paternal grandparents, John Patrick, and Flossie Patrick. Larry Patrick was born in Dallas, Texas, on January 1, 1966, to Anita Patrick and Prentiss Patrick. He grew up in Gilmer, Texas, where he graduated high school in 1984. Larry began his career as a butcher at the early the age of 13 and spent many years working as a meat department manager in Longview, Texas. He married Laura Jenkins on April 18, 1987 and welcomed his two beautiful daughters into the world in 1992 and 1996, whom he loved very much.  Larry was a devoted father, son, and loving friend to many. He was old fashioned and believed in working hard for what you get; success was not based on materialistic items, but your morals and character.  Larry was a proud Texan and loved collecting and shooting guns. He also enjoyed being outdoors and staying busy. Some of his favorite hobbies included: fishing with his buddies, deer hunting with his brother, cooking, reading, building things, and yard work. He adored his two cats who he constantly spoiled, Daisy Mae, and Squeaky. Larry always appreciated spending time with his family around a home cooked meal, usually followed by a competitive game of cards, or dominoes. He was a spiritual man, and Gideon. Larry led many to a personal relationship with Christ, through church and his warm fellowship. He will be remembered as having a big heart that never ran out of room for new friends and will be deeply missed by his family, friends, pets, and all that had the privilege of knowing him.  A celebration of life is scheduled for 4:00 p.m. on July 18, 2021,at the Sunrise Shores Property Owners Association: 4593 Sunrise Dr., Chandler, Texas, 75758.

Mr.Larry was one of the most calm and caring people I had the pleasure to call my friend. He was more than a friend, he was more like family to me than my actual family is. . . He understood that I had severe PTSD from combat without a word being said and helped me learn how to cope and control the situation any time I had a break down. He talked me though it and taught me how to stay calm throughout the nightmares, just his calm voice and a fishing rod seen me though some dark days. I love and miss you my friend. I know your God is taking care of you. Of anyone I know, Mr Larry deserves to get in to the heaven he told me was awaiting. Salute.

I only knew Larry for a little over a year. He made such an impact on my life in that short amount of time. He was kind, generous,funny and just an all around good friend and wonderful person. I miss him dearly. We liked to plant shop together, hang out at his lake house, and eat! And talk and watch t.v. He gave me rides on his golf cart all around his beautiful neighborhood. He kept telling me he knew he didn't have much longer.. I know he was ready. Larry had strong unwavering faith. I never heard him complain even though I knew he lived in pain daily. I know he is in Heaven now and that I have a new guardian angel. That thought, and belief that someday I will see my friend again, gives me comfort.
