February 15, 1945 – February 21, 2021
Larry Gordon Farrington, born February 15, 1945 in Whitesboro, Texas passed away at his granddaughter’s home on Sunday, February 21, 2021 after a hard-fought battle with lung cancer. He was preceded in death by his parents, Gordon & Amie Farrington; his sisters: Debbie Sadoski & Joyce Payne Peterson; his brother, Bobby Joe Farrington. It comforts us to know that his family was there waiting to welcome him into Heaven.
He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Kathy Farrington; his sons, Shane & wife Cindy Farrington; Daniel Farrington & fiancé Alice May; his daughters, Camille & Michael Wallace, Amie & Charlie Birnbach. Larry is also survived by 6 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren. Larry is also survived by several nieces & nephews and many cousins.
Larry’s priority in life was to take care of his family in every aspect. He lived BIG; worked hard and played harder. He was successful in everything he touched-whether it be the car business, family life, or encouraging others to be their best. He was in the automobile industry for more than 40 years. He was our hero, our rock, the greatest story-teller who ever lived; and the Patriarch of our entire family. He treasured family time more than anything. Larry also loved to travel, hunt, go boating and motorcycle riding. We will miss him dearly and he will forever live on in our hearts & memories.
Larry’s service will be held at J.E. Foust & Son, 523 Main Street, Grapevine, TX 76051 on Sunday, February 28 at 10am. Masks are required.
The Celebration of Larry's life will be live streamed.

Thanks Larry. Meeting you 20 years ago, put me on a path. Still in the car business. I have been blessed. I’ve always had your voice in my head. “Stop whining, go sell something!” You always had a way of not listening, but looking like you were, looking up over your glasses, “yep.” That’s all I needed. Thanks for all my ‘Farrington moments.’ Your voice and memories will continue in my mind.

I knew Larry from the old days of Hudiburg Chevrolet and Autonation! I also worked with Shane for a few years! My Sympathy to all of the Family!
Rest in Peace, Larry!!
