Larry will be loved and missed by so many more. His love and life were getting together with his family whom he valued. His passions were hockey especially. Larry will eternally be a Leafs fan, but enjoyed many other sports as well. Larry passed his time doing sudoku puzzles, defeating his Rubix cube, keeping a close watch on his family on Facebook and spending time with his wife. He lived to prove the medical field wrong through research. He had a passion for woodworking which he continued through his life when his own hands could no longer hold tools. He loved the outdoors and was passionate about hunting and fishing and his passion continued to carry on through the adventures of others and through the memories of his uncle Moe and Ken. Larry was passionate for his family and will live on in our gatherings and memories, Love never dies with the body, it remains and binds us together.
