A New Vision, A New Voice ~ The North Texas Conference
Lazarus C. (Larry) Krohn, 80, passed away Wednesday, June 21, 2017. Memorial services were Sunday, June 25, 2017, at First United Methodist Church, Athens, Texas, with Rev. Faulk Landrum. Rev. Jason Smith and Rev. Andrew Wolfe officiating.
Larry was born in Mississippi on October 2, 1936, to Earl and Mamie Krohn. He received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Houston. He also attended East Texas State University and received his Master of Divinity from Southern Methodist University. At a very young age Larry was planning to follow Christ. At age 10 he delivered his first sermon — he later laughingly said he covered Genesis through Revelation in ten minutes.
He served as pastor in Dallas, Quinlan, Lancaster, Brushy Creek and Mt. Vernon churches. His greatest joy was in serving Christ through preaching.
He was preceded in death by one brother and his parents. Survivors include his wife, Mary Jo; his son Wesley and wife Jane; grandchildren, Max, Jake and Katie; his extended family of children, John and Jim, as well as five children and other great-grandchildren.
