We had so many wonderful memories as kids growing up. Marsha and I were and always will be close and I cherish those fun times we had together. Sandy and Larry were like a second mom and dad for us. And Larry and my dad were the all time pranksters in their “younger” years. The “rock” will always live on in memory of Larry. We will love and miss him. RIP Larry ❤️❤️

Mr. Odom was a memorable contributor to my youth in Galveston while I was close friends with his daughter Marsha Odom. His quick humor and supportive energy will be missed by all. My sincere condolences to his wife, daughters, and extended family. May God carry each of you through these difficult days.

We will miss our "Uncle" Larry. Larry has been an important family member in our lives. I spent MANY summer weeks at the Odom's house, shared over 40 years of Thanksgivings and Easter celebrations, he was my bar server at our wedding, and helped us adjust to living in Texas. We will cherish our memories of him. Love and prayers for our Odom family.
