Larry Glen Adler, 68, of Waco was called home by his Savior on Wednesday January 8, 2020. There will be a celebration of his life at Grace Gardens Funeral Home at 2:00 pm on Saturday, January 25, 2020 with a reception following.
Larry was born on October 8, 1951 in Hillsboro, Texas to Alfred and Gladys Adler. Larry grew up in Pasadena, Texas and moved to Frost, Texas shortly after graduating from high school. He married the love of his life, Jackie Adler, on August 4, 1977 in Malone, Texas. Larry was a selfless, hard working man who dedicated himself to supporting his family. He enjoyed working outdoors and spent most of his career driving dump trucks. At the time of his death he was employed by Holy Contractors, LLC.
Larry loved the Lord and he and his wife are members of First Woodway Baptist Church. Anyone who knew Larry had no doubt that he loved his family and friends. His life revolved around his wife, daughters, grandchildren, and great grandchildren – along with other family members and friends who became family to him. He loved cheering on his grandchildren in all they did and never missed an event. He liked to spend the rest of his time watching old Westerns while cuddled up on the couch with his fur friend Bash, or driving around visiting friends and checking to make sure they were okay. He was always the first person to step up and help anyone in need.
He was greeted in Heaven by his parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, in-laws, and son-in-law.
Larry is survived by the joys of his life, wife, Jackie Adler; daughters Shari Brewer and husband Mark of Fairborn, Ohio and Keri Tindell of Hewitt, Texas, grandchildren Megan, Mallory, Madison, Jordan, Carter, Shelby, Addison and Jaxon; and great grandchildren Kinsley and Cooper.
