Larry Hatfield, 76 – Passed October 28, 2020

 Larry Hatfield, 76, of West Plains, Missouri, left this world on October 28, 2020.

He was born on July 31, 1944, the son of Loyd “Dutch” and Alma Opal Hatfield. Larry has five siblings.

He served his country in the United States Marine Corps as a radio tele operator in Honolulu, Hawaii, before marrying Judy Hatfield in 1968. Larry had five children: Sean, Mike, Danielle, Rusty, and Jennifer. He also had six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Larry’s family was the joy of his life and they felt the same way about him.

Larry was preceded by his parents; his daughter, Danielle; grandson, Ian; sister, Carol; and brother, Jerry.

Despite his earlier instructions to “just stick me in a cardboard box and bury me in the backyard,” Larry requested that he be cremated, and his ashes scattered at his favorite place in Colorado. He also requested that no funeral be held.

Arrangements were under the direction of Elliott-Gentry-Carder Funeral Home of Cabool, Missouri. Online condolences may be made at
