Following the sad news of Larry’s passing his family released the following statement:
Larry was back in his beloved Dallas re-enacting the iconic role he loved most. Larry’s family and close friends had joined him in Dallas for the Thanksgiving holiday. When he passed, he was surrounded by loved ones. It was a peaceful passing, just as he had wished for. The family requests privacy at this time. The Hagman Family wishes that in lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to The Larry Hagman Foundation.
Dallas’ star Larry Hagman lends support to city’s budding young photographers
The Larry Hagman Foundation, founded by the actor Larry Hagman, supports and promotes creative arts education for economically disadvantaged children in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area.
A Texas native, Larry Hagman was back in Dallas for his second-act as J.R. Ewing, the character that everyone loves to hate. Hagman was filming the second season of TNT’s hit “Dallas” TV show and he wanted to do something extra to give back to the city that has contributed so much to his success over the years. He founded The Larry Hagman Foundation to promote the educational benefits of theater, visual arts, dance and music and to fund organizations providing these instructional programs for low-income children.
