Mt. Triumph Baptist Church in Alexandria, Louisiana under the leadership of Reverend R.R.

Tamales from scratch with his great aunt, Georgia Allen. By age 18, he was the Head Cook of
Georgia’s Hot Tamales in Alexandria, LA. Larry later entered the hospitality industry and
worked at several hotels in the Alexandria, LA. area. His love for people also led him to
volunteer his free time at the VFW Post 8852 in Alexandria, LA.
Larry loved his family with a passion, no matter the holiday or the family event, you could
always count on Larry to attend. Although he had a quiet personality, he touched so many lives

good dance floor. Larry will be truly missed.
