Larry “Bird” Dale Dorrell passed away on Sunday January 3, 2021 at the age of 71.
Born on December 17, 1949 in Beaumont, Texas to J.C Dorrell and Mollie Evonne Snider Dorrell, Larry was known as a Cool Guy. He was a good person, very creative and inventive, extremely smart and a great athlete. There was truly little that Larry could not do. He enjoyed hiking, golfing, camping, cooking and family dinners. Kind and caring, he always had time to help anyone, the kind of character that makes the movie great! There are too many heroic stories to tell including one incident when he saved 5 strangers from drowning in a lake after their car crashed.
The last four years were extremely meaningful to his family as he made time to reconnect and focus on them, even having the chance to work with his brother Jay. Larry will be greatly missed by those who loved him.
Left to cherish his memory are his children, Jessica Dorrell of Houston and Nicholas Dorrell of Houston; his good friend and the mother of his children, Luz Giraldo; his siblings, Jay Loyd Dorrell and wife Ginger of Lumberton, Kathi Evonne Hill and husband Glen of Fulshear, and Randy Eugene Dorrell and wife Sharon of Lumberton.
Preceding him in death are his parents J.C Dorrell and Mollie Evonne Snider Dorrell and beloved family pet Katy.
Cremation services have been entrusted to Lumberton Family Funeral Home.
