Wilcox attended Rawlins High School, and after matriculating tried his hand at various jobs including acting. In 1967, he joined the US Marines and served for 13 months in Vietnam during one of the largest military campaigns called the Tet Offensive. In 1973, he was honorably discharged with the rank of Staff Sergeant. Afterwards, he went on to finish his studies at Cal State Northridge.

One of his first roles as an actor came as a guest appearance in 1971’s “Room 222”. He then appeared in an episode of “The Streets of Francisco” before starring in “Lassie”. He continued making regular appearances in television shows such as “Cannon”, “Hawaii Five-O”, and “Police Story”, and becoming part of the film “The Last Hard Men”. He also made various commercials during this period.

In 1977, Larry was cast to become part of the action series “CHiPs” which was about California Highway Patrol motorcycle officers. During his time with the show he performed a lot of his own stunts, but never suffered any major injuries. During the peak of the popularity of the show, Larry was said to be making $250,000 per episode which significantly boosted his net worth, and along with co-star Erik Estrada, he appeared on the cover of TV Guide three times. In 1978, rumors started circulating on how the two co-stars were not on good terms with each other, but Wilcox told the press that it was just exaggerated. However, after the show’s run, the cast members would reunite during the show’s 35th anniversary though Erik Estrada did not show up.

After “CHiPs”, Larry started his own production company entitled Wilcox Productions and it would be responsible for producing “The Ray Bradbury Theatre”, “The Yorkshire Ripper” and “The Wolfman Jack Story”. During this time he was involved in directing, as well as continuing to act. He also started to branch out and work with other distribution companies, becoming the executive producer of “Death of a Playmate: The Dorothy Stratten Story”. He also appeared in “The Dirty Dozen: Next Mission” before reuniting with Estrada in “National Lampoon’s Loaded Weapon 1”, and then reprising his role of Jon Baker in “CHiPs ‘99”, and would later do a cameo in an episode of “30 Rock”.
For his personal life, it is known that Larry married Judy Vagner in 1969 and they had two children together but divorced in 1978. His second marriage was to Hannie Strasser in 1980 and they had a daughter but divorced in 1982. In 1986, he married Marlene Harmon who was part of the 1980 Olympic heptathlon team. They have two sons, and currently reside in the San Fernando Valley.

1I have learned a great deal in my life, and DeMolay helped me to learn that character and integrity should be cornerstones in your life. As a Senior DeMolay, as a father, the best advice I could ever give would be to take the high road in life, and you will be able to build trusting relationships.
2Family is very important to me because that is the footprint we perpetuate. That is, the ripple in the water when the rock first impacts the pool and it is those waves, that energy that one produces, that determines our direction.
3I feel so lucky I was able to ride the merry-go-round that most people dream about but never get the opportunity. If they do, it is later in life and is sometimes construed as a poor and untimely reflection of one's choices. The film business was a great lesson in business combat and what it takes to survive.
4I'm the kind of person who just likes to participate creatively regardless of the credit.
1Spending most of his time in a ranch in San Fernando Valley, CA. Runs from there his company UC HUB Group, Inc. (their corporative offices are in Las Vegas) and enjoys the company of his wife and sons. [August 2006]
2Sentenced, in a Ft. Lauderdale, Florida courtroom on January 28, 2011, to three years probation for conspiring to commit securities fraud.
3Member of DeMolay in Rawlins, Wyoming, where he served as Master Councilor of Rawlins Chapter.
4In February 1999, founded the UC HUB Group, Inc. UC HUB delivers solutions for communications needs, including connectivity, content, and commerce. UC HUB's vision of an interconnected Digital Community, where all can benefit from the enhanced quality of life offered by the applications, products, and services available to each digital citizen, drives the company towards the future and influences all of the company's corporate decisions. This successful company has its corporative offices in Las Vegas. Larry Wilcox is the company's Chairman, President, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, and Director.
5His only sister (he had two other brothers) was slain in front of her three children and her own mother in Wyoming. Her husband was accused of the murder but acquitted in a celebrated trial. He was subsequently killed in a barroom brawl.
6He produced, directed, written, and starred in a children's video called The Little CHP (1995), which tells the story of two little boys who dream of becoming CHP motor officers.
7Rumors of friction began to surface between Larry and co-star Erik Estrada late in the 1978-1979 season on the "CHiPS" set. When Erik Estrada married late in 1979, Wilcox was not invited. Larry married his second wife four months later and returned the compliment. Estrada's serious motorcycle injury at the beginning of the 1979-1980 season did not repair the relationship. Time, however, has seemed to heal all wounds and they have kept in touch occasionally in recent years.
8Was up for the Nick Nolte role in the miniseries Rich Man, Poor Man (1976).
9Larry's two oldest children from his marriage to Judy Vagner are Derek Wilcox and Heidi Wilcox. Daughter Wendy Wilcox is from his marriage to second wife Hannie Strasser.
