Larry Jackson "Jacky" Bynum

July 4, 1964 - January 29, 2013

Larry Jackson (Jacky) Bynum, 48, stepped into heaven Tuesday morning, January 29, 2013, in Farmersville, Texas. He was born late on July 4, 1964, in Grandad’s car, going down a Dallas highway with a police escort—in full “Jacky” style! He attended school in Plano and Abilene Wylie and graduated from Allen High School in 1982 where he played football. He loved driving the ice cream truck while in high school.

Jacky had an amazing talent for anything associated with construction and assisted many family and friends with various construction, remodeling, and creative projects. He loved to play 42 dominoes and fishing with family, assist step-dad Johnny with training dogs and harvesting honey, and lend a hand to anyone anywhere that needed help. Although Jacky was not a member of an organized church, he had made a profession of faith as a young teenager and had recently spoken of conversations about heaven with Grandad (Bynum) before his death in January 2012.

Jacky is survived by his mother and stepfather, Pansy and Johnny Anderson of Farmersville; a brother, Calvin Neal and wife Ina Lynn of Farmersville; a sister, Tonya Hamilton Ellis and husband Garry of Allen; a daughter, Brittany Nicole of Cleveland, Ohio; nephews Sean Bynum and Ryan & Kristen Bynum of Farmersville and Brent Hamilton of Allen; nieces Erin Bynum and Sara Bynum of Farmersville and Caitlin Ellis of Allen; great-nephew Jude Bynum of Farmersville; aunt and uncle Buddy and Melinda Bynum Strickland of Liberty Hill and aunt Rosemary Tedford Cupps of New Mexico; and many extended family and friends. Anderson family members include Mike & Pam Anderson Herron of Grand Saline, Carlos & Sharon White of Sugarland, Dan & Karen Anderson Vaughn of Cedar Park, and their extended families.

Jacky was preceded in death by his father Larry Bob Bynum, nephew Noah Bascom Bynum, and grandparents Calvin & Ina Mae Bynum and Neal & Eunice Tedford.  

A funeral service will be held at 10:00 a.m., Friday, February 1, 2013, at Turrentine-Jackson-Morrow Chapel in Allen, Texas. Interment will follow at Ridgeview Memorial Park in Allen. The family will receive friends during a visitation from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m., Thursday evening at the funeral home.
