Later, young Mr. Crumpler married the love of his life, Rebecca “Becky” Lee Cotton. The couple celebrated 48 years of marriage, in March.

Larry was quite busy when it came to making a living, as he spent many years as a claims adjuster, worked for Murphy Oil and Crystal Oil, and owned convenience stores and car washes. He also stayed active, he loved life out on the “links” as he enjoyed the game of golf for many years. Another famous past-time of his was fishing at his fishing camp on Lake Erling, outside of Springhill, LA. In the latter years, the big fun, was the grandkids and making all of their games and sporting events and cheering them on. Now that was his passion! Larry loved the Lord and he and Becky were charter members of Eastwood Baptist Church in Haughton and adored all of his church family.
