William Lawrence (Larry Miller)
September 18, 1944 – July 27, 2010
Born in New Westminster BC, Larry was a 40 year resident of Lantzville and 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 and sisters-in-law; many nieces and nephews, great nieces, 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.
A Celebration of Life was held at the Lantzville Community Hall on Monday August 2, 2010. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Nanaimo Hospice or Palliative Care, NRGH. Cancer may have caused his death, but it did not take his life.
