June 22, 1939 – January 22, 2017
It is with deep sorrow and sadness that the extended family of Larry wish to announce his sudden and peaceful passing within his home in Campbell River BC at the vibrant age of 77 years. Born in the small coastal village of Black’s Harbor New Brunswick, Larry ventured out into the world at an early age. A born entertainer, he had become an accomplished musician and vocalist. Larry settled into a variety of occupations including entrepreneurship throughout his life after meeting and marrying his sole mate of 51 years, Melba Thompson. As an avid outdoors man, Larry had hung his hat in Campbell River BC in 1992 and had never looked back. He’ll be compassionately remembered by all for his charming character, positive attitude, jovial personality, quick wit and ability to be the life of the party. A very special thank you to all of the healthcare professionals who assisted Larry throughout his journey in recent years. Larry is predeceased by his two parents, four siblings and loving wife Melba. He is survived by his son Tod, a great many extended family members and life long friends. Larry’s Facebook page is currently open to the public for viewing and comments.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, April 2, 2017 at 1:00pm in the Anchor Inn Ballroom, 261 Island Hwy, Campbell River.
