Summers were spent enjoying Larry's favourite place camp out at Whitefish Lake. It was always full of family & friends (Whitefish Gang) & lots of laughter. Nothing made him happier than ringing the 4PM Happy Hour Bell where all the Whitefish Gang would gather, have a cocktail and tell stories!

Predeceased by his parents Lloyd & Helen, Brother Robert. As per Larry's wishes, Cremation has taken place and a private family burial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations made to the Alzheimer Society or a Charity of your choice would be appreciated. Arrangemetns entrusted to the Blake Funeral Chapel.
The family would like to extend our heartfelt Thank You to all the staff at Pinewood Court (Hummingbird) for their excellent care of Larry and for their compassion towards him and our family during his peaceful passing.
