Larry's first trip to the Big Bend area was in 1981, and as is common, he fell instantly in love. An avid 4WD and ATV enthusiast, he broke in new vehicles on the roads of Big Bend NP and Terlingua Ranch. Since 2002, he has been a TR property owner, and built his current ranch house in 2013. Semi-retired from a 36 year career as a signs and graphics business owner, photography, digital art, and abstract painting have been his pastimes of choice. Larry and his wife Sue split their time between their small ranches in Terlingua and rural North Texas near Stephenville.
