Born in New Westminster BC, Larry was a 40 year resident of Lantzville & a long time teacher in Nanaimo at Brannen Lake School, NDSS and Dover Bay. He is survived by his wife Roberta, children Aaron (Carrie), Nicole (Chad) and Cuong (Quyen), brother Ted (Patti), mother in law Marge Jeffs, faithful companion Ginger, brothers in law & sisters in law, many nieces & nephews and great nieces and great nephews and many friends. Left behind was his trusty fishing hat Steve and the largest crop of beets ever planted on Vancouver Island. Larry was an avid gardener, fisher, knitter, wood-chopper and camper. He was never happier than when he was on the water, puttering in his garden, knitting in his living room or in his forest looking for downed trees to cut up for his winter wood supply.
