Larry was born on June 10, 1953, in St. Martinville. Throughout his life, Larry found joy in the simple pleasures of duck hunting, fishing, and spending time at his camp in the basin.

Champagne); grandchildren, Taylor Clark (Aaron), Carlie Bourque (Cullen), Tyler Champagne, Paris Champagne; step grandchildren, Anthony Salvador Melancon, III and Kelsi Guilbeau; great-grandchildren, Isabelle Clark, Charli Clark and Miller Broussard; step great-grandchildren, Jaxon Guilbeau and Millie Guilbeau; and one sister, Lucille Theriot.
