Lawrence Ralph Spurlock
Lawrence Ralph Spurlock, 80 of Georgetown, TX passed away Sunday, January 6, 2019, in Round Rock, TX after a very brief illness.

Larry, or Butch as he was known to family and childhood friends, was born July 22, 1938, in Pryor, OK, the son of Ralph and Mary Elizabeth (Ganner) Spurlock. After graduating from Inola High School, Larry began his adult life with 2 years of service in the U.S. Army Reserves and completion of education programs at Northeastern Teachers College and Oklahoma Military Academy. He married his high-school sweetheart, Roberta (Ladwig) on May 21, 1960, in Inola, OK. They began life together in Tulsa, OK where Larry started his professional career working for Graybar Electric. This industry became Larry's career-long focus as he successfully developed his expertise as an electrical supply salesman in Tulsa and then Houston for many years. His years of hard work were rewarded with retirement in Sun City, Georgetown, TX where Larry avidly pursued his passion for golf. He also enjoyed extensive travel during these years as well as time with family and friends. After Roberta's passing, Larry shared several years with his sweetheart Sondra Sumner. He remained close to his sisters and their families throughout his life and found great joy in the tight relationships he formed with his three grandsons. And he remained always the trusted advisor, friend and best Dad ever to his two daughters.

He is preceded in death by his wife, Roberta Spurlock, his sister, Linda Baldridge, and his parents.

Survivors include his daughters, Sherry Spurlock of San Antonio, TX, Shelley Thornton and husband Jerry of Westphalia, TX; sisters, Jane Stout and husband Bert, Loretta Best and husband Virgil of Inola, Sharon Burgett and husband, Charles, of Edmond, OK; sister-in-law, Randi Chesbro, and husband, Bob, of Pawhuska, OK; sister-in-law, Robin Cooper, of Joplin, MO; grandsons, Jeremy, Taylor, and Benjamin Thornton.
