Larry Ray Hughes – April 13, 2018

Larry Ray Hughes, 75, of Amarillo, was called home to be with his Lord and Savior on Friday, April 13, 2018.

Memorial services will be at 2:00 p.m., Wednesday, April 18, 2018, at Arden Road Baptist Church.  Burial will be private.  Arrangements are by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors, 2800 Paramount Blvd.

He was born February 21, 1943, in Reydon, Oklahoma to Johnny William Hughes and Margaret Ellen Hughes.

In 1973, he married the love of his life, Betsy Parker Hughes.  Larry and Betsy worked together for over 45 years in Larry’s construction business, Larry Hughes Builders, Inc.

Larry was a member of the Texas Panhandle Builders Association for many years and was well-known for his custom quality construction of residential homes and commercial buildings in Texas and the surrounding area.  Larry was a very generous and loving man who always helped others.  He was a member of Arden Road Baptist Church and never missed an opportunity to tell you about God.

He is preceded in death by his parents; one brother, Jim Hughes; and one sister, Sonja Clark.

He is survived by his wife, Betsy; one son, Mike Hughes and wife Molly; two daughters, Kristy Paddack and husband Thomas and Katrina Alexander and husband Jeremy; one sister, Janet Fletcher and husband, P.D., all of Amarillo; 12 grandchildren; 4 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

The family suggests that in lieu of flowers, a memorial donation be made to the Alzheimer’s Association.

    Larry built our first home in Amarillo in 1986. We moved away, and when we came back,we made sure we bought a Larry Hughes built home. Betsy was extremely helpful. Our prayers.
