Larry Henson

Long time Santa Paula resident, Larry Henson, passed away peacefully on February 19, 2014.

Larry was the foreman for Gooding Ranch for over 50 years. He contributed many years to our local agriculture community. Larry retired to the Mohave Desert in 2006.   He spent his last years doing what he loved best; riding buggies in the mountains with his family, collecting antique tractors, and tinkering on anything with a motor, Paul at his side. Larry was a loving and devoted husband, father; grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. He will be forever in our hearts.
