Larry Darnell Jones was born on June 4th of 1958 in Gary, Indiana, to his mother, Eloise Jones. Larry passed away on July 15th of 2020 in Arlington, Texas, at the age of 62.

Larry was raised in Gary, Indiana, alongside his brothers, Ralph, Michael and Mathis. He graduated from Roosevelt High School and served in the United States Army Reserves. Larry worked as an artist and as a member of the Local 81 Laborers Union in Valparaiso, Indiana. He moved to Arlington, Texas, to be closer to his daughters and his grandchildren.

In his younger years, Larry joined the United States Army Reserves and served as a Private E1. Larry was also an entrepreneur in different business ventures. He was involved in a community outreach program, which provided portraits to mothers who lost their children to acts of gun violence.

Larry was a loving father, Papa, and a great friend. He was very intelligent, outgoing, selfless, and was beloved by so many. He enjoyed reading books and had a passion for legal law.

Larry is preceded in death by his mother, Eloise Jones, his older brother, Ralph, and his youngest brother, Mathis.

Larry is survived by his children, Preston, Daniel, Shawna, Holly, David, Noelle, Lily and Matthew, his grandchildren, and his lifelong friends.

An upcoming memorial service will be announced at a later date, due to the unforeseen circumstances.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider making a donation to the Salvation Army, which was important to Larry.
