Larry Joe started his family in Memphis as a mechanic and then moved back to Crockett Mills to farm and continued until retirement. His #1 job was to do whatever Carolyn asked of him. He always had his to-do list and pen in his front pocket. In his early years he loved to race cars and then later in life he slowed down to antique tractors. He won lots of pulls with his ole John Deere! He and Carolyn traveled extensively all over the world when he retired until she was not able. They had so many lifelong friends they loved. To know Larry Joe was to love him and there was not a better man to live life with.
A celebration of Mr. Prescott's life will be held Saturday, January 21, 2023, at Pond Creek Congregational Methodist Church Fellowship Hall at 12:00 noon with reception, food and fellowship for all attending.
