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 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.
