2022 So Far

Lawrence “Larry” Philip Pacos of Arlington, Texas was called to be with Our Lord on Monday, March 15, 2021 at the age of 65. 

 Larry was born July 3, 1955 in Dunkirk, New York to Stanley and Patricia (Walawender) Pacos. After graduating from Dunkirk High School, he enlisted in the U.S. Army where he was an expert rifleman and sharpshooter. He was honorably discharged at Fort Hood and would remain a proud Texan for the rest of his life.  

 Larry was a professional truck driver and even upon his recent retirement, continued his passion for travel on the road. One of his goals was to visit all the major league ballparks throughout the country. He also loved to spend time in the many small towns in Texas and enjoy their uniqueness and character. He was an avid Texas Rangers and Texas Christian University (TCU) fan, proudly wearing their colors as part of his daily attire. 

 A devoted Catholic, he was an active member of St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Arlington. His love for his children and grandchildren was first and foremost in his life and he will be missed dearly.

Wreaths Across America's Trucking Tributes Presents Crowley

It goes beyond the fact that you’re delivering a wreath to be laid on a service member’s grave. You’re delivering so much more when you think of the families that will see that wreath, potentially for the first time, laid on their loved one’s grave. The opportunity to deliver that level of heart-felt thanks is why we do what we do.”...
