Larry was born August 14, 1951 and passed away on May 2, 2024 after a 20 year battle with Parkinson’s. He was born in Monroe, LA. He was a standout athlete while at Neville High School.

He was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church for over 50 years. Mr. Worley served his country in the United States Army. He retired after 20 years of service with the US Army Reserve.  He always enjoyed fishing, golfing, spending time at the beach. He was a big fan of music.  One of his favorite things to do was attend the Song Writers Festival in Gulf Shores year after year. But mostly he enjoyed spending time with family and friends, sitting around telling stories and laughing.  He was always known for his sense of humor,  jokes, and infectious laugh.  And he never lost his laugh and sense of humor until his days of passing. 

 

He is preceded in death by his parents, Lawrence Worley, Sr. and Adele Luffey Worley; and father-in-law, Joseph Goergen.
