Larry accepted the Lord as his Savior at a young age and was a member of Temple Baptist Church. He was a life long farmer, with a love for sports, a passion for music, and a philanthropic heart which he continuously gave back to the community. One of Larry’s gifts to the community includes the building of the Frisco Ball Park, which several generations have enjoyed playing / watching league play and ball tournaments.

Larry had a heart of gold and would do anything to help someone in need. Most of all he loved his family and had a special place in his heart for the kids. He was the instigator of many family reunions and if you ever attended one, you will never forget the Nunn Family 4th’s.
