Larry Luna #301

Larry Alan Luna of Georgetown, Texas, died Monday, October 9, in Georgetown, Texas. He was born in San Antonio, Texas to James and Peggy Luna on March 21, 1955. As a small child he lived in San Antonio and Dallas, Texas. Larry graduated from J.J. Pearce High School in 1974, where he was a star quarterback, and received several offers to play collegiate football. Larry received a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Stephen F. Austin State University in 1979. At SFA, Larry was a proud member of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity. After graduation from SFA, Larry started his career with the Maytag company, which evolved into a leadership position with his family's business--Richardson Appliance.

In 1994 Larry moved to Longview, Texas, where he helped develop a successful communications business serving customers throughout the world. There, he was ultimately promoted to president and CEO of Encompass Communications, LLC. In recent years, he was also instrumental in establishing several other successful companies. He was truly a talented businessman.
Larry was a loyal friend and stayed in touch with most of the friends he made through the years. He was a hard worker, had a special talent for mentoring young men, and serving his family. His family was of utmost importance, and he spent many hours visiting and vacationing with them. He especially enjoyed spending time on the water. Larry received Jesus Christ as his Savior in 1984, and in recent years his life was made rich with God's Word, serving the local church, and sharing with others God's love. His death was sudden, and a shock to all who knew him. During his battle with atrial fibrillation and congestive heart failure he never complained or pitied himself. Recently, when asked how he was feeling, he responded by saying, "Either way, I win. If I stay, I get to have more time with my family; if I go, I get to be with the Lord Jesus."
Larry is survived by his wife, Amy Luna, sons, Justice and Jacob Craven of Georgetown, and Ryan Luna, his wife Genesis, and three grandchildren, Marguerite Luna, William Luna and Beau Luna, all of Waco. He is also survived by his mother, Peggy Luna, of Richardson; his brother Tarry Luna and wife Tracy, of McKinney; by nieces, Cameron Russell and husband Cliff, of Farmers Branch, and Ava Luna, of McKinney; and nephew, Hayden Luna of McKinney.

The memorial service will be held in Leander, Texas, on Saturday, October 14, at Central Leander Church at 11 am. His final resting place will be in the Florida Keys. Flowers and/or memorial remembrances may be sent/made to the Central Leander Church in Leander, Texas.
