Rev. Larry Austin Attig, better known as Bo to those who loved him, passed away peacefully on June 4th, at his home in Estill Springs, TN surrounded by his family. Larry was an ordained elder in the Church of the Nazarene. He and his wife Becky have served churches in Missouri, Georgia, North Carolina, Florida, and Tennessee. He loved going and serving with Work and Witness. There are countless lives that have been affected by Larry and Becky’s ministry. They have served in youth, music, children, lead ministry, and chaplaincy over their 46 years together. The Kingdom impact they have made is immeasurable. He was always the first to lend a helping hand, and never wanted credit for it. He took pride in everything he did because he believed it was a reflection of Christ’s character. When his health declined he never complained, always reassured his family that it would be ok, and never hesitated to give glory to God. Embracing the difficult struggles and leaning into Jesus allowed those around him to experience genuine faith and trust. His legacy means his presence is still with us. Larry lived out Deuteronomy 6. He loved the Lord with all his heart, and with all his soul, and with all his strength. He corrected disobedience with love, and made his children feel safe in his arms. He revealed the very nature of the Heavenly Father. He was present and active, teaching those around him by example that the Lord is fully aware of each of his children. Larry preached recently, “He can use disappointments and devastations to accomplish a greater purpose. Wherever we are and whatever we are going through, may it always bring glory to God. Sometimes life doesn’t make sense, but what we can always know is our Father loves us.” Besides studying and preaching, Larry especially loved spending time and playing with his children and grandchildren. He was talented in many areas. He could lay tile, hang dry wall, paint, loved wood working, and enjoyed anything that gave him an excuse to use a power tool. He excelled in any sport he attempted. He was competitive, sarcastic, and a practical joker. He was a Harley Davidson man and a St Louis Cardinal fan. Larry is survived by his wife Becky, his mother Evelyn, and brother Dennis. Larry and Becky have 3 children, Keri Hastings (Matt), Jared Attig (Lauren) and Denean Lennon (Nicholas) and 13 grandchildren. Bailee Hastings Davis (Matthew), Emily Hastings, Matthew Hastings Jr., Cassidy Attig, Reagan Lennon, William Hastings, Evelyn Attig, Walter Attig, Anderson Lennon, Emmett Hastings, Rhett Lennon, Henry Attig, and Eleanor Lennon. Because of Larry’s passion for the Gospel, racial reconciliation had a special place in his heart. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to a memorial fund, created in Larry’s honor, for a church plant that will be ministering in a culturally diverse community.
