Larry Thomas Wilkins left this earth on Friday, March 10, 2023 to rest with the Lord. He was 75 years old. Larry was born on May 30, 1947 in Shawnee, OK to Thomas and Emma Louise Wilkins. He was raised in McLoud, Oklahoma where he attended and graduated from McLoud High School. He took part in basketball and FFA. Larry loved music. He was a drummer for his FFA Chapter and played at the National Convention. He later went on to be a base player in the band Night Shade and played into his 30’s. After high school, he married Carolyn Freeman, and they had two daughters, Catherine Mae and Kimberly Renee. He later married Beverly Davis in 1974 and they had one daughter, Shandra Louise. They moved to Bethel Acres in 1983 where they lived until moving to McLoud in 2003 where he remained until his passing. Larry worked many types of jobs in his life from driving an 18 wheeler, selling shoes and then settled at White’s Ace Building Center, as a Floor Manager, where he retired after 22 years.
