Obituary

Larry Douglas Thurman Sr., of Idabel, OK, went to be with the Lord at 5:55PM Wednesday, February 9, 2022, Plano Baylor Heart Center, Plano, TX.

Larry lived his life in service to others and gave with a generous heart. He loved the Lord and his family unconditionally; was always there for everyone, friend or stranger. He served his community by keeping 136 foster kids over his 40-year career. He loved to fish and hunt. Most of all, he loved his chicken fried steak. He never met a stranger and was the most loving man you will ever meet. One thing about Larry, he always had a smile on his face. 

Larry was preceded in death, by his wife, Viola Thurman; and his father, Wesley Thurman. Larry was an only child. 

Larry was survived by his mother, Mary Thurman, of Idabel, OK; five children: Larry Doug Thurman, Jr. of Idabel, OK, John Thurman, of Benton, AR, Tara Gonzalez, of Plano, TX, Jeff Steaveson, of Idabel, OK, and Alicia Ishcomer, of Idabel, OK; brother-in-law, Eldridge Suggs, of Holly Creek, OK, and 9 grandchildren: Kelsey Thurman, Cody Thurman, Rocklyn Thurman, Jaser Thurman, Dakota Gonzalez, Macie Cochran, Bree Ishcomer, Tristan Ishcomer and Asher Ishcomer; along with countless foster children. 

A Celebration of Life Service will be Monday at 11AM, at the Clardy Funeral Service Chapel. Visitation will begin at 10AM, until service time. Flowers can be sent to Clardy Funeral Service at 1201 E. Lincoln Rd., Idabel, OK 74745.
