Laurence P. Hoare

Apr 21, 1936 – Mar 22, 2018
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Larry Hoare announce his sudden passing at his home in Sayward, B.C.

Larry is survived by a large and loving family. Left to mourn is his wife of 53 years, Janett, son Randy Orr of Nanoose Bay, stepson Michael Melnyk of Edmonton, step daughter Angeline Tuttle of Nanoose Bay, along with grandchildren Christina, Jenny, Madeline, and Gracie.

Originally from Ontario, Larry was predeceased by parents Thomas and Dora, and Sister Doreen. He also leaves behind brothers Clarence, Charlie and Ron, as well as Sisters Jean, Colleen and Connie. Larry was also an Uncle to many nieces and nephews.

Thank you to everyone who has provided support during this difficult time. We would also like to thank all the Sayward first responders who tried unsuccessfully to save him.

There will be no service by request. In lieu of flowers, donations in Larry’s name may be made to the Sayward Fish and Game Association.
