Larry David Grigory, 66 of Carrollton, Texas, passed away Sunday, July 1, 2018, at Memorial Herman Texas Medical Center in Houston, Texas. He was born in 1951 in Paris, Texas to Martin and Bess Grigory.
He was a great hunter and fisherman all his life and especially liked to go on trips to Southeastern Utah to deer hunt. His favorite place to fish was at Eagle Nest Lodge in Winnipeg, Canada. He went every year for 30 straight years and helped the owner expand the business. He was an avid Dallas Cowboys fan and for years had season tickets to all the home games.
After graduating from Broken Bow High School in 1969, he completed his electronic engineering degree from United Electronics Institute. He then went on to become the top specialist for Documation, located in Melbourne, Florida. This company flew him all over the United States to solve problems no one else could.
In 1981 he became a field engineering manager for Storage Technology Corporation in Dallas, Texas. After a twenty-year, highly successful career at Storage Tek, he went on to become regional manager for The Bradshaw Group.
While he was building his successes in the computer world, he started his own business, CRC, which designed computer systems for small businesses. He also did computer and business senior consulting work for George S. May International Company, American Search Partners, and Paragon Group. He still found time during his earlier IT career days to play semi-pro football for the Texans in Dallas. More recently, he had been working with the semi-pro football team, Paris Stars, assisting them with the TUFL 2018 Eastern Division championship.
But more than all these accomplishments, Larry was a loving brother, devoted uncle and faithful friend.
He is survived by his brother, Grady Grigory and wife Carolyn; sister, Gladysann Benson and husband Tony; nieces, Gina Busbee, Fawn Creighton; nephews, Dr. Scott Grigory and Blaze Benson; great nieces, Presleigh, Emma, Billie, and Elle; great nephews, Cannon and Dash; special friend, companion and business partner, Deborah Hardy; Aunt Ann Ashby and many cousins.
A visitation for family and friends will be held on Friday, July 6, 2018, from 5:00 PM until 7:00 PM at Bunch-Singleton Funeral Home in Broken Bow, Oklahoma.
A Celebration of Life Graveside Service will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday, July 7, 2018, at Denison Cemetery with Bro. Jimmy Jeter officiating.
