Lawrence “Larry” Owens, 63, of Franklin, NC was called home to be with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Thursday, September 10, 2020. He was born in Miami, Fl. and moved to Franklin 25 years ago. Some may remember him as the tall skinny dude who would walk into town each day, coffee in one hand and a cigarette in the other waving to everyone who drove or walked by him. He served in the United States Army for 3 years and received an Honorable discharge in 1983.
He was a member of Cornerstone Presbyterian Church in Franklin.
Larry is the son of the late Roy R. Barton, Dianne A. Owens Barton and W. Mason Owens. In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his son, Richard Lee Owens; two sisters, Terry Owens Fortier and Laura Owens and a brother, Leo M. Owens.
Larry is survived by his sister, Debi Varner; two sons, Christopher Owens and Jeremy Lyn Owens; several cousins, nieces and nephews; a great niece and a great-great niece.
A private Celebration of Life is planned for a later date. A private family viewing was held on Friday, September 11, 2020
