Larry was always building things, whether it was home construction since he was a contractor or cabinets which he began building in later years. He was proud of his guitar which was very distinctive with a panel and “L” engraved and was given to him by his grandfather. The guitar was usually the first thing a person saw when entering the home. Larry collected coins and arrowheads that he spent hours walking the fields and searching for. Larry also liked to spend time fishing.
Larry married Goldie (McFann). She preceded him in death on October 3, 2011. He was also preceded by a daughter, Cheryl “Cherie” Bissette; two sisters, Shelby Hitt and Linda Isom: and a brother, Bobby Hitt.
Surviving is a daughter, Cindy Hitt of Doniphan, two brothers, James Hitt and Ricky Hitt; a grandson, Hayden Flax, and two great-grandchildren.
