Larry Childress Obituary

Robert Larry Childress, 81, of High Point, passed away Saturday, January 20, 2024, at Kernersville Medical Center.

Born October 12, 1942, in Forsyth County, he was a son of the late Robert Morrison Childress and the late Lottie Mae Hepler Childress. Larry started in retail as a teenager and was manager of Hines Shoes until he retired. Larry was a former member of the Winston-Salem Jaycees. Larry never met a stranger and loved all his customers. He had special coffee buddies at Country Bar B Que and Biscuitville in High Point. Larry loved to go to flea markets and yard sales. He will be missed by all who knew him, and his favorite saying was “hang in there”.
