Larry was born on Jan. 9, 1937, in El Dorado, Kan., to Thelbert and Elizabeth Cornett. Soon he was big brother to Bob Cornett of Cresson, Texas. He attended the University of Kansas and graduated in 1958 with a bachelor's degree in business, where he was a member of Delta Upsilon fraternity. He married Sally Joan Benson on Sept. 1, 1957. When his brother married Sally's sister Sandy, there were many family memories to be made with vacations, get-togethers, and shared grandparents. He worked for many years in the oil and gas industry as well as several family businesses. After the passing of his wife Sally, he found love again and married long-time family friend Harlene Barnes in 2001.
He was a resident of Fort Worth since 1972, and enjoyed many friendships with chapter Laureate Beta Zeta of Beta Sigma Phi and was a talented pianist.

Larry enjoyed gardening, nature, geology, music, cooking, watching the Mavericks and Cowboys, and entertaining. One of his favorite things was hosting an annual Christmas Eve sing-a-long with family and friends filling his home. He had a quiet and unique way of encouraging people and extending generosity and hospitality to others.
