Larry Frederick Hughes
April 1, 1955 – July 29, 2015
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Larry Frederick Hughes.
As a young man, Larry loved to ice skate and play baseball. He enjoyed working at the Civic Arena, and installing furnaces with his father, as well as salmon fishing from his father’s boat. He was a versatile man and held many different jobs; bartending at the Oxy for a number of years, driving a cab for AC Taxi, and working on the new Island Highway as a concrete truck driver along with his pump truck.
Larry had a high sense of adventure and a very kind heart, especially for animals. Later in life, he enjoyed watching TV with his three beloved dogs – Panda, Bailey, and Jenny, and riding his Harley Davidson. He had a great love for his family, especially his mother, whom he visited faithfully everyday at the Seniors home.
