Larry Jackson, Sr.

May 23, 1935 — March 26, 2018

Larry Jackson, Sr.


Larry K Jackson Sr. went to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on March 26, 2018 at the age of 82 years.

Larry is survived by his beloved wife of 62 years, Patricia A Jackson (Lappo); his five daughters and one son, Jean Olinger of Blanco, Texas (Chuck Olinger), Lisa McIntyre of San Antonio, Texas (Elroy McIntyre), Lydia Crumpton of Columbus, Texas, Linda Price of San Antonio Texas, Sherry Weltz of San Angelo Texas, (Jon Weltz), and Larry Jackson Jr of San Antonio Texas (LouCinda Jackson); thirteen grandchildren and eighteen great-grandchildren.

Larry was born on May 23, 1935 in Traverse City, Michigan. He joined the United States Air Force in May of 1952 and rose to the rank of Master Sergeant; he retired in May of 1973. During his military career he traveled to many states and countries, but would always return home to Michigan where he made his lifelong commitment in May 1956 and married Patricia Ann Lappo of Traverse City. In August 1969, after seeing the world, Larry loaded his six children and wife in a 1957 Chevy station wagon and headed for his last military station at Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio, Texas where he would place his roots. Larry was a lifelong member of VFW Post 9174, American Legion Post 579 and the Fraternal Order of Eagles

After Larry's military career ended, he started a new career as a production manager at King Koil Bedding in San Antonio, Texas. Larry's hard work and dedication allowed him to excel. With only a 9th grade education, but the lifelong desire for knowledge, he read every book of the encyclopedia and was able to rise to the position of Vice President of Operation before his retirement in 1998. Larry was awarded his high school diploma in October of 2014.

Larry was always known as a tuff hard fighter until 1975 with the arrival of his first grandchild, which he referred to as Nitnoi (Little bit). From that day on, his tuff personality would lessen with the birth of each grandchild and great grandchild. He held a special place in his heart for each grandchild and great grandchild; he loved nothing more than when the entire family and friends would come together for BBQ's.

Larry was a three-time cancer survivor.
