Celebration of Life for Larry Goad

August 22, 2022




Our beloved brother Larry Goad returned to his Heavenly Parent on August 13, 2022. We all know that  Larry would want a celebration of his life for as many family members and friends who wish to attend and  celebrate him. 

We have reserved space at Temple’s Cultural Activities Center of which he was a patron. The celebration  will be held at 1:30 PM on Sunday, September 11, 2022, at 3011 N. 3rd Street in Temple, Texas 76501. 

Typical of all of Larry’s gatherings, this will be a casual event, not a service or a memorial. Feel free to  express yourself and any interests you shared with Larry, such as his love for Star Trek, travel, Broadway,  biking, reading, etc. by wearing or bringing an item that expresses that shared interest. 

Larry requested charitable donations in lieu of flowers. A few of his favorite recipients are: 

Equality Texas Foundation 

P.O. Box 2340 

Austin, TX 78768 


1801 W. Olympic Blvd 

Pasadena, CA 91199 

Human Rights Campaign 

1640 Rhode Island Ave NW 

Washington, DC 20036 

However, please give joyously to the recipient of your choice as Larry would want you to do. 

We will never know the true extent of Larry’s circle of friends. Please feel free to share this information  with those you know would love to celebrate Larry’s loving and giving life. 

We truly appreciate your love and appreciation for Larry in your life. We hope you will be able to come and  share with others the impact he had in your life.
