Larrie was an avid fisherman, gardener and outdoor enthusiast. His favorite trip abroad was to Pickens, Colo., with his lifelong best friend Charlie Coker where they built a log cabin. Larrie took many pictures of wildlife and the scenic setting while he was there. He truly loved the outdoors and everything about it with the exception of skeeters and buffalo gnats which annoyed him tremendously but nothing that Skin So Soft would not help with.For those who did not know Larrie well, they may say he was a loner or introvert which is far from the truth. Those closest to Larrie would say that he was a proud, kind, and compassionate man who loved his family, friends and his pets. He will be forever missed and loved. He also will live on in our hearts and memories of a man that spoke little words but left a profound impression upon all who knew him best. God speed, Larrie Tom Upton.
