Larry Dale Janes, 66, of McGregor, Texas, passed away on Wednesday, August 2, 2017. The visitation will be 10:00 a.m. Saturday, August 5, 2017, Cole Funeral Home, McGregor, and immediately followed by a graveside service at McGregor Cemetery, with Jimmy Hering presiding.

Larry was born in Waco, Texas, on May 6, 1951, to the late C.H. Janes and Cleo Janes-Fulcher and raised by Cleo and Jess Fulcher, from the time he was six years old, until their deaths. He graduated from McGregor High School in 1969. On May 25, 1979, Larry married Linda Kay Williams, of Waco, Texas.

Larry worked at Cogdell's, in Waco, Dana Corporation, in Waco, and retired from Tractor Supply Distribution Center, in Waco, in 2003. He was a devoted employee at each company and was a valued part of each organization.

He was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed fishing and hunting, as often as he could. He was also a beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Larry's life absolutely revolved around his kids, grandkids and great grand-daughter. He never missed a practice, a game, a cheerleading event, birthday, or any other event that involved his kids, grandkids, and great-granddaughter. If they were doing anything, Larry was there cheering them on as their biggest fan.

Larry was preceded in death by parents, C.H. Janes and Jess and Cleo Fulcher.

Survivors include his wife, Linda Janes; his sons, Jeff Parsons and wife, Megan Gerik-Parsons, Jason Parsons and wife, Misty Parsons; grandchildren, Dana King and husband, Brady King, Alex Parsons, Zoie Gerik, Cameron Parsons; and great-granddaughter, Ryan King.

Larry's family would like to thank their friends, neighbors, and family members for their love, support, and prayers during this difficult time. You will never know how much it is appreciated. The family requests that any memorials, in Larry's honor, should be directed to the McGregor Chapter of Meals on Wheels.
