SIMS — Larry Wayne Dorough, 67, passed away Thursday. The family will receive friends from 4 - 6 p.m. Sunday at Joyner’s Funeral Home, 4100 Raleigh Road Parkway, Wilson.

Larry loved his Lord Jesus Christ, his family and all things sports. While his health limited him, he did his best to attend every grandchild’s game or performance. He had a great sense of humor and never missed an opportunity to joke with those around him. He will always be remembered for his books, his Bibles and his Mountain Dew — of which there were many of each!

Larry is survived by his daughter, Dacia Edmonson and husband, Chris, of Bullard, Texas; son, Trent Dorough and wife, Johnna, of Sims; grandsons, Benjamin and Zachary Edmondson of Bullard, Texas and Connor Dorough of Sims; granddaughter, Natalie Dorough of Sims; sister, Rita Hindman and husband, David, of Texas; and his brother, Mike Dorough and wife, Donna, of Texas.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Simeon Ray Dorough, Ken and Lavada Jean Finch. Raised by Jim and Edna Cunningham.

Flowers are welcome or memorials may be sent to Wilson Family YMCA, Girls on the Run/Stride, 3436 Airport Boulevard, Wilson, NC 27896.
