    My condolences to the family, I had the pleasure of getting to know Larry through the husky gas station. And just had a heartfelt conversation with him not long ago. He will be missed tremendously, and my hope for the family, they make it through this tough time. ❤ love Laura and rene and all the husky staff

  • Susan Brown says:

    My deepest sympathy to you Jo-Ann & family. Larry was one of my first clients when I started my job over 11 years ago. The comments about Larry being a gentleman, quiet, gentle and wise are so true. His smile and patience were second to none. It came as a shock to hear of his passing today. Jo-Ann, you and Larry raised strong children and I pray that strength and wonderful memories get you all through this most difficult time. Rest in Peace Larry!

  • Tami Fur says:

    I was so saddened to hear of Larry’s passing. Many years ago as a new public servant I was lucky to have met Larry. To this day, some of my fondest memories include walking in the woods with Larry whether we were talking about land development, first nations history or just life. The world is a better place to have had Larry. My condolences to his family.

  • Jon Lackey says:

    Larry was a friend of mine for a long time. He worked at the First Nations office. He will be missed.
