Larry Glen Frisby, 74, passed his earthly test and went home peacefully in his sleep on October 6, 2021. Larry was born June 17, 1947, in ElDorado, AR, to Melba and Morgan Frisby. He attended Strong High School where he excelled in football with the Strong Bulldogs making All Regional and All-State. As a teenager, he enjoyed vacations with his parents and squirrel hunting with friends and cousins and began amateur boxing. At age 18 he entered the U.S. Army where he served as a medic. He continued to box after an honorable discharge. He then attended the University of Arkansas at Monticello where he met the love of his life, Vivien Diane Roberts. They were married on July 12, 1968. At this time, he ceased his boxing career but continued to keep tabs on current fights as a hobby. They had three children together. Larry worked many years for Schuler Drilling Co. and the Huttig Mill where he retired as Boiler Operator. Throughout his life, Larry continued to keep up with the football world. He could recall most High School game scores by memory in Arkansas, Louisiana, and parts of Ohio, dating back to the 1960s. Larry also owned, raised, and enjoyed working with game fowl, several bantam varieties, peacocks, and other animals such as goats, pigs, horses, and dogs.

Larry also served on the Union County Fair Board for many years where he was active in the fair process and judged the poultry division. He also held office as President of the South Arkansas Poultry Association until his passing. He was a member of the American Legion and enjoyed crossword puzzles. Larry could beat the computer with his checker skills and loved spending time with family and his grandchildren. One of Larry’s favorite pastimes was reading his Bible.
