Larry Don Rainwater, 72, of Ruston, Louisiana, passed away on March 13, 2021 from a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Visitation will be Sunday, March 21, 2021 from 4-6 PM at Kilpatrick Funeral Home of Ruston. A private burial service will be held at a later date at Kilpatrick’s Memorial Gardens.
To know Larry was to love him. He loved his family, friends, pets, whiskey and cars. He loved watching his children and grandchildren play sports or whatever activity they were involved with. He loved his wife fiercely, and he was an “expert” mechanic. His laugh was infectious and his loyalty was unwavering. He was always there for someone in need.
Larry was predeceased by his parents, Nelda and Harvey, and his wife, Donna Ruth Mabry Rainwater. He is survived by his sister, Vicky Rainwater; his son Greg Rainwater and wife Cassidy and daughters Morgan, Evelyn, Peyton and Callie Jean; his daughter Stacy Rainwater Miller and husband Brian and son Joshua; as well as several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
A Celebration of Life will be held Sunday, March 21, 2021 at Kilpatrick Funeral Home, 4-6 p.m. The family has requested a private burial. In lieu of flowers, the family prefers donations be made to the Alzheimer’s Association or the American Heart Association.
