Larry was like family to us; someone who wanted us to be our best, shook his head when we weren’t, laughed when we messed up but was always ready to help us out of that mess. He treated our kids with kindness and had a special spot in his heart for Megan, as she did for him. He could grow cucumbers and tomatoes like nobody else. He had a great dry sense of humour and we always enjoyed our chats with him in the backyard. He was irreplaceable and will be very missed by us all. Hugs and love to his family. We are holding you all close in our hearts.
Sorry to hear of Larry’s passing. My condolences to the family. RIP Larry

My deepest condolences to you all with the loss of Larry. The pictures say it all as as a family man with beautiful children all around him. My husband Jim and he were the same age and shared the same passion for baseball. He had a wonderful visit on your veranda with Larry before he passed away in 2013. He was so touched by that visit ..I remember well.
To all of your families.. my deepest sympathy.

Dear Wanda and family – we are deeply saddened by Larry’s passing. We will never forget the skilled. Carpentry work he did for us at our cottage in Port Mouton. That included the rider mower shed he built and signed as “Larry’s Cottage”. We smiled when I saw where he placed the single window – facing the apple trees that attract deer in the fall. Whenever we were in Liverpool on our few annual visits, we alway looked forward to seeing Larry and his dry sense of humor as well as a source of how-to’s for tackling any problem at the cottage. I know this – they’ll be a roar of thunder if I don’t deal correctly with future cottage issues! RIP Larry, and much love to Wanda. Casey & Anne
