LARRY BLAKE PINSON,72, CAMPBELLSVILLE & PIKEVILLE

 
Larry Blake Pinson, 72, of Campbellsville and Pikeville, KY was born on May 9, 1947 to the late Blake Pinson and Anna Rae Dotson Pinson in Pikeville, KY. He passed from this life on July 1, 2019.
 
He professed faith in Christ and was a member of the First Baptist Church in Pikeville and attended the Mannsville United Methodist Church.  At an early age, his parents instilled in him a strong work ethic and sharp sense of business. He married his loving and devoted wife and partner, Gayle Minor Pinson, on September 27, 1975. Together they worked side by side to operate many successful business adventures, with his passion being real estate. Larry was known for his tough negotiating skills, vast real estate knowledge, and making every dollar count. He was an avid horse and mule enthusiast who loved riding and just simply being around them. He enjoyed watching old westerns and horse races. He always betted on his close friend Ken Ramsey’s horses, and when able to attend the race he looked forward to joining them in the winner’s circle. He was honored when Ken named three horses after him; Pinson, Mellon-Cutter, and Tightwad. Larry loved to auctioneer and the excitement of the sale. Out of all of his hobbies, trail riding in the truck was always his favorite.
 
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by one brother, Robert Dotson Pinson.
 
SURVIVORS: Wife: Gayle Pinson; 3 daughters: Anna Pinson Spears & husband Robbie, Lisa Sizemore & husband Rory, and Lesley Anderson & husband Chris all of Pikeville, KY; 6 grandchildren; Blake & Chrisley Anderson, Ava & Hadley Sizemore, and Archer & Piper Spears; cousin & lifelong friend: Bert Hatfield; several other cousins, in-laws, and many close friends
 
Larry Blake lived his life the way he wanted…His Way! He wrote his own rules, paved his own way, and was a fighter until the end.
 
In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations be made to the Mannsville United Methodist Church, either to the church directly or through the funeral home.
