Larry Hagman, the son of Mary Martin (aka “Peter Pan”) and Dallas’ best -known TV patriarch, died today at the age of 81.
He had just recently created the Larry Hagman Foundation to promote creativity among children in the underserved areas of Dallas.
He had also helped the Cattle Baron’s Ball live auction raise funds to fight cancer.
Larry was slated to be the keynote speaker at the upcoming AWARE luncheon this spring.
He was surrounded by his Dallas family including Patrick Ewing and Linda Gray during his finally hours at a Dallas-area hospital.
Our condolences are extended to his family, both personal and professional, as well as the many who benefited from his generosity and zest for life.
We’ll miss knuckle-bumping with him, his adorable smile and the mischievous twinkle in his eyes.
