Larry, "Toab" Waldington, was born July 31, 1957, in Ruleville, Mississippi. He was one of eight children born to the late James and Effie Lee Field Waldington. 

Larry received his education in Sunflower County, Mississippi and graduated in 1976 from Ruleville High School. After graduation, he joined and served from 1976 - 1985 in the U.S. Army National Guard. 

Larry was a member of St. Peter M B. Church in Sardis, MS under the leadership of Rev. Odell Draper, Jr.
