Larry was blessed with 15 Grandchildren and 14 Great Grandchildren.
Larry graduated from Snyder High School where he won 1st place at State competition for the 4-poster bed he made in wood shop. Larry was always good with his hands and loved old hot rod cars and big semi-trucks. Over Larry’s career he only had 2 jobs, Levi Strauss blue jean manufacturer as the Plant Manager, and Farrah Jeans as Plant manager. With this experience and Larry’s love for trucks and entrepreneurial spirit, he was inspired to open his own company, Hayes Trucking Service. For 20+ years Larry operated Hayes Trucking Service Inc. transporting freight across our great state of Texas. He eventually retired from freight hauling in 2000 and enjoyed a few short years with his 2nd wife Ann Dinwiddie who passed away in 2003.
Larry had an incredible sense of humor, he loved life and always had a smile on his face. Larry was an incredible story-teller, a trait he has passed down to his children.
