I enjoyed working with Larry over the past 5 years. His determination and will to carry on were remarkable. Although he struggled with his health every day, he was always upbeat. He’s now enjoying time with Jordan whom he grieved for so much after she passed. To Larry’s family, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Mr. Pickett was a man of good character, my parents and I were reoccuring customers of his for years. We enjoyed dealing with him he made you feel important whether you were his first customer or his fifty first customer. May GOd be with you during this time.

I haven’t seen Larry since graduating from Durham High School with him but have nothing but very fond memories of a very caring person. My prayers are with his family.

Please accept my condolences on the death of your father. I worked with Larry for many years at Seymour Johnson. He was one of the “good guys”. He fought a long battle and my prayer is that he is now pain free and in a beautiful place. I will always remember him and miss his famous black walnut fudge at Christmas!
