Larry Presley, June 24, 2024


Larry Eugene Presley, age 76, of Shelbyville, passed away Monday, June 24, 2024, at his home.
A graveside service was held at 10:00 AM Friday, June 28, 2024, at Willow Mount Cemetery.
He was born June 23, 1948, in Winchester to the late Louise Ford Davis of Bixby, OK, and the late Lawrence Howard Presley of Franklin County.
Larry was a source of wisdom and unconditional love for those who knew him, and his absence will leave an irreplaceable void in the lives he touched. A man of deep faith, Larry loved God and cherished spending time with his family on his farm, hosting family dinners and game nights until late hours. He was also a naturally-gifted mechanic and craftsman, able to fix or create almost anything with his hands. He retired from American National Can while operating a successful business as a highly sought-after auto body mechanic for over forty years.
He is survived by five children: Cynthia Presley Sullivan (Willie) of Shelbyville, TN; Jennifer Price (Wes) of Shelbyville, TN; Christopher Presley of Lynchburg, TN; Bradley Presley (Julia) of Estill Springs, TN; and David G. Presley of Nashville, TN. He is also survived by a sister, Mattie Rider, of Bixby, OK; 16 grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, four nieces & nephews, and a host of extended family and friends.
He was preceded in death by his infant daughter, Lori Ann Presley, and by his brother, David E. Presley, of Shelbyville.
To memorialize Larry, the family asks that you give his love away to others in the same way he gave unconditional love to those in his life.
