He retired as owner of Nett & Nett Construction where he and his father, Clifford, ran a construction company for many years throughout the community. He was also the owner and operator of Nett Strawberry Farm.

Larry was a member of Northside Baptist Church and attended Southeast Christian Church, Elizabethtown Campus. He was saved at a very young age and lead his life through the church and Christ.
