Larry Craddock


Larry Dale Craddock, affectionately known as ‘Lil Larry’ was born to Larry Dale Jones and Vanessa Janine Jones on August 3, 1987, in Columbus Ohio. He departed this earthly life on July 31, 2021 at the age of 33.
He graduated from Mifflin High School in 2006 and went on to become very successful as a supervisor for several well-known organizations such as Amazon and Copper’s Hawk Restaurants in both Ohio and Florida. He also had a passion for Party Planning and had the opportunity to design and plan several for family and friends.
Larry was a member of The Triedstone Ministry Baptist Church from birth. He was one of Triedstone Babies, who started praising the Lord with all that was within him, at the tender age of five. He grew into the knowledge of Christ, dedicated his life and distinctively became known for ‘the clapping of his hands’. When you heard it, you knew Lil Larry was in the building. As a member of Triedstone, he served in many ministries: Young Disciples of the Stone (YDS), Children’s Band, Young Adult Usher Board, God’s Anointed Generation (GAG) Steppers, The Young Adult Praise Team, and
The Mass Choir
Larry loved his family and friends and made everyone feel special. He was the life of every party and showed everyone a good time. He met no stranger and no one could call you SUGA like Lil Larry.
Larry leaves to cherish his memory: his loving Parents, Larry and Vanessa Jones, beloved Brother, Joshua Craddock, and his precious God Sister, Justice Jones – Page, and a praying Grandmother (known as Nana), Mother Jacqueline Moncrief. Aunts, Bernardetta Jones, Cynthia Jones, Gwendolyn Jones, Lucinda Acklin-White, and Monica (David) Stewart. Uncles, David (Loretta) Craddock, Sr, and Orlando Craddock
He also leaves to cherish his memories a host of very special Cousins – Varia Smith, Jermaine Evans, Keshia Craddock, Tomiko Jones, David Craddock Jr, Mario Briggs, Vincent Craddock, Ashley Briggs, Marcus Craddock, Keonia Jones, Anastasia Craddock, David Anderson, Elatea Jones, Lesean Jones, Marrico Jones, Brittany Acklin, Sierra Acklin, Antonio Acklin, and Antwan Acklin
Though we are well grieved, we take comfort in knowing that he is reunited with love ones who preceded him in death: Great-Grandmother: Novella D. Noble, Grandmother: Henrietta Jones-Acklin, Aunt: Joyce Jones and Cousins: Armani Anderson and Andriquez Acklin
