He is survived by his wife of fourteen years, Karen Lane Foxx; son, W. Dale Helton of Hickory; granddaughter, Makayla; nephew, Rob Paterno; nieces, Wendy Martin, Stacie Story, and April Williams; and his beloved canine companions, Sophie and Meghan.
Larry wanted everyone to know the importance of early cancer screening at the first sign of any health issues. In his final days, early cancer screening became his mission as he asked everyone he knew to become more aware.
