We Remember

BIGLER, Laurence Anthony

With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Larry on November 2, 2019 at the age of 70. He is survived by his loving wife Terry Fraser-Bigler; daughter Kimberly (Steve) Maurice; sons Sean (Cindy) Bigler, Trevor Fraser, and Christopher (Tammy) Fraser; grandchildren Aleasha, Jessie, Kali, Allan, Caden, Isabella, and Kane; as well as his mother Margaret Bigler; brothers Ronald (Gay) Bigler and Richard Bigler; and sister Leslie (Wayne) Larochelle. He is also survived by the mother of his children, Cindy (Dieter) Hassel; stepmother Jean; and sisters-in-law Brenda and Donna (Verne). He was predeceased by his father, Anthony Bigler, and his father/mother-in-law Laurence and Florence Pixley.
Born in Armstrong, Larry spent his early years in Maple Ridge. As an adult he moved to Kelowna and began a long and dedicated career in Financial Services. Larry moved to Calgary for 10 years where he completed his goal of guiding and coaching others through his consulting business. He returned to Kelowna for his retirement and it was well spent enjoying wonderful memories with his family and friends.
Following a sudden and brief encounter with cancer, Larry’s wish to spend his final days at home surrounded by best friends and family was realized. Larry maintained unrelenting passion for his family, old cars, music, hockey (go Flames go), fishing, golf and Mexican vacations.
This true gentleman was a passionate and dedicated professional, a loving father, grandfather, son, brother and husband who instilled strong values in those he loved. He will be forever loved, remembered and deeply missed.
The family would like to thank the Palliative Care nurses for their amazing care and compassion.
A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, December 6, 2019 at 4:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC. Since Larry loved to watch hockey and root for his favorite teams, we encourage you to wear your favorite hockey jersey to the service in a tribute to one of his passions.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the BC Cancer Foundation, www.bccancer.bc.ca. If you wish to send a condolence, post photos or share a memory, please scroll down the page to the area called “Condolences”.

    Larry was a wonderful man. I had the good fortune of breaking bread with him as he was out and about on his consulting business over the years. Always a gentleman and a brilliant business person. Canada has lost a great citizen.

    Dear Sean, Terry and family!! So sorry to hear of Larry’s passing-seems not so long ago that we all enjoyed a get together at his favourite fishing camp and also a great round of golf with him in Calgary!! I really enjoyed his friendship and his high energy metabolism -made you laugh all the time!! May the memories I have of him and Terry at our Leadership Retreat for a Financial Services Group in Okanagan Resort be fresh in my mind as I enjoyed that experience so much because of them both. Take Care and may we always keep in touch!

  • Kim Martin says:

    To say that Larry touched my life would not be an overstatement. It was working with Larry that lead me on a path that became life. He introduced me to his daughter Kim for the initial purpose of joining the Okanagan Junior Chamber, There I met good friends I have to this day not to mention my husband and I have never forgotten that it was Larry who lead me there. Although it has been years since we last spoke, he has never, and will never be forgotten. My thoughts and prayers to you all. – Kim (Hennessy) Martin

  • HEIDI MILLER says:

    Terry, I was very saddened to hear of Larry’s passing. One of my first memories of Larry is him coming out to the branches to provide training on wealth products, he was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about this subject and it showed. I always enjoyed catching up with Larry when I would see him at a function and we would usually share a good laugh about “Ruggie” as that was always our standing joke, I sure appreciated his great sense of humour. Terry, the love you and Larry shared for each other inspired many around you, including me, may that bring comfort to you in the days ahead.
