Edward Larry Corcoran, known to friends and family as Larry, of Texas City, Texas passed away peacefully Sunday, December 16, 2018 at the age of 71.
Larry was an extremely loving and supportive father and grandfather. He carried with him a sense of duty and responsibility at all times while also having a sense of humor that was truly his own.

He is survived by his children, Renee Michelle Myers and her husband Chris Myers, and Edward Larry Corcoran II and his wife Amber Corcoran; his mother, Hazel Corcoran; sisters, Candy Howard, Karrie Combs, and Pat Jennings; as well as eight beloved nieces and nephews combined. Our dad was also blessed with his granddaughters, Miranda, Lila, and Rebecca Myers.
