Larry Wayne Ray, of Canton, passed away May 16, 2021 in Tyler, Texas at the age of 56. He was born in Parkland Hospital in Dallas, Texas on February 1, 1965.
Larry spent most of his childhood devoutly following the Dallas Cowboys. Entranced by the thrill of the game he quickly became a Fan. Going into his teenage years, he would constantly be outside playing the game he loved with his friends and family. Eventually he met Pamela Sue, the woman who stole his heart. Soon teenage attraction became marriage.
Larry had a passion for his family. Anything they needed, they got. He would give the shirt off his back if he knew you needed it. He loved any sort of sport, bowling with his kids and being the family chef at cookouts buying as much stuff as he could grill just so he could see his family smile. Food was how he showed people he cared. Larry turned his life over to our Lord and spread His word as best he could. He exemplified what it meant to be a Christian.
Larry was preceded in death by his parents JC and Dorothy Ray. He is survived by his wife, Pamela Sue; four children-Larry Joseph (Christeena Jo) of Tyler, Dorothy Ann of Canton, Christopher Wayne (Savanna Lee) of Haltom City, and Molly Evelyn Elizabeth Ray Burpee (Jack Edwin ll) of Athens; three brothers-Roger (Mickie) of Irving, JC Jr of Seagoville and Jerry (Shirley) of Joshua; four grandkids-Brenden, Alissa, JC Cole, Aiden and a plethora of nieces and nephews.
