Larry R. Brown (February 9, 1943 – August 16, 2012) was a member of the North Carolina House of Representatives. He was first elected in 2004 after defeating Rep. Michael P. Decker in the Republican primary.[4] Decker had spent most of his last term as a Democrat although he had been elected earlier as a Republican.

Brown served in the U.S. Navy from 1965-1968. He earned a bachelor's degree from Central Wesleyan College (South Carolina), now known as Southern Wesleyan University. Brown then worked for the US Postal Service and later as a real estate broker.

Brown was a Christian. He and his wife Martha were the parents of two children.

Brown was criticized by a gay rights organization for using anti-gay slurs in an e-mail to fellow House members in 2010.[5]

Following redistricting, Brown was defeated for another term in the May 2012 Republican primary. He died later that year, while still in office.[6]
