Larry Costello Obituary

Larry Dean Costello of Hallsville, Texas passed away on July 9, 2023 at the age of 71.  Larry fought a courageous battle after suffering a stroke, and passed at home surrounded by loved ones who will continue to honor his legacy by living their lives to the fullest. His family is confident that he is rejoicing in heaven, free of struggle and pain. 


Larry retired after 50 years in the oil and gas industry and was so proud to share that same profession with his brothers, sons and nephews. Larry made many life long friends during his career. The Costello family has been amazed by the number of people who have reached out paying their respects and celebrating the life that Larry lived. 


The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Larry.  He had a life long passion for automobiles and spent his time after retirement restoring cars and trucks.  He loved evenings with family on the front porch talking about life experiences and discipling his family. Larry enjoyed long phone calls with his oldest son, Trent, working on his classic vehicles with his middle son, Stoney and building deer stands and finding the perfect hunting spots with Cody, his youngest. If he wasn’t doing those things, he could be found watching the grandkids play in the front yard, scrolling Marketplace or front-porch-sittin’ with his wife. 


Larry is survived by his wife Ginny; his sons, Trent, Stoney and Cody; two daughters-in-law, Lori and Brittney; 9 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren, and his brothers Robert and Bobby.  He is preceded in death by his parents; Wayne and Laura, brother Wayne Henry, and sisters Betty, Joan, and Maxine. 


Larry overcame several setbacks and accomplished much more than many doctors thought possible following the stroke.  The battle took an enormous toll on his body and for this reason he wished for his remains to be cremated.  East Texas Funeral Home will be facilitating Larry’s final wishes.  The family greatly appreciates all the love that has been shared from so many of Larry’s friends and former coworkers.  Larry wished that all his friends and family would remember him as he was and celebrate the life that he lived. There are no plans to hold a formal service at this time.
