Larry Killough Obituary

On February 9, 2024 Larry Hugh Killough, 81, of Monroe, NC entered into Heaven’s gates to be with his Lord and Savior whom he faithfully served; surrounded by his loving family.  Larry was born on February 1, 1943 to the late Hurley Hamilton Killough and Kathleen Phillips Killough in Matthews, NC.  Throughout his life, he exemplified what it means to be a loving husband, father, friend and “Paw” to all of his grandkids.

Larry led a life of service and helping others, both personally and professionally.  He never hesitated to extend a helping hand.  For over six decades, he worked as a garage door technician where his expertise and knowledge were unparalleled.  After retirement, Larry continued helping others through garage work, landscaping, and many other capacities.  His tireless work ethic served as a testament to his remarkable character.

On September 14, 1963 Larry married the love of his life, Mary Mullis, who he spent every day cherishing.  Their enduring marriage stands as a shining example of love, respect and unwavering devotion, inspiring all who were fortunate enough to know them.

Larry enjoyed spending time with his family, who he loved dearly.  His love for them knew no bounds.  He was always a great example of how to act and treat others.  Larry was a man of deep faith whose greatest joy was nurturing a love for God within his family.  Through his words, actions and steadfast devotion, he planted seeds of faith that shaped his family’s lives with love, grace and eternal hope.  He was a man of few words, but his actions and the example he set spoke louder than words ever could.

Larry also enjoyed going to the mountains with family, hunting, fishing, gardening and being outdoors.  He never ran out of things to do, and if there wasn’t anything, he would find something.  Often when asked what he was doing, Larry would reply “just piddling”

As a devoted Christian, Larry was a faithful member of West Monroe Baptist Church, where he served in various positions.  He was also a proud member of the Monroe Masonic Lodge #244 of Monroe, NC.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his granddaughter Lacee Paige Sullivan; brothers Joe Killough and Jimmy Killough; sisters Lynda K. Prisley and Peggy K. Poole.

Larry is survived by his loving wife, Mary Mullis Killough of Monroe, NC; daughters Sherry Killough Hicks (Russ) of Pageland, SC and Deitra Killough Johnson (Russell) of Monroe, NC; grandchildren Dustin Hicks (Emiley) of Monroe, NC, Whitney Traywick (Hunter) of Marshville, NC, and Landee Staton of Monroe, NC; great-grandchildren Huntlee Traywick, Silas Traywick, and Hendrix Meadows; brother Ed Killough (Penny) of Concord, NC; sisters Geneva Gresham of Washington, IL, Judy Dickerson of Pageland, SC, Carrie Dennis of Jefferson, SC, and Mary Strong (Nick) of Lancaster, SC;  many nieces and nephews; and his beloved dog Ko-Ko.

The family will receive friends on Wednesday, February 14, 2024 from 12:00 to 2:00 PM in the Sanctuary of West Monroe Baptist Church, 1212 Icemorlee Street, Monroe, NC.  There will be a Celebration of Life service directly after at 2:00 PM.  Burial will follow at Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church, 3530 Hwy 601 N., Pageland, SC.

There’s no doubt that Larry heard the words “Well done thou good and faithful servant” when he made his way into Heaven.  He has fought the good fight, he has finished his race, and he has kept the faith.  Now, a crown of righteousness awaits him. Though we part ways for now, it’s not goodbye, but rather, see you later. Oh, what a day that will be!
