April 2, 1948 - September 20, 2020

We have a huge hole in our hearts as we announce the passing of our beloved husband, dad, gido, Lawrence Allan Mozel. After a courageous battle with cancer, in the arms of his family, Larry left us on September 20, 2020.
Survived by his wife/partner of 54 years, Maureen (Colbert), daughter Leah (Don), son Allan (Lorna), grandchildren, Justin, Nicholas, Jonathan, Matthew and Mary, sister Susan (Peter), and numerous other family members.
Larry was an amazing husband, my best friend and my true love. His family meant the world to him. He was very proud of his kids, grandkids and all of their accomplishments. Always there to lend a helping hand, support, motivate and love us.
Most of Larry's lifelong career was spent at Federated Insurance wearing many different hats mostly in the Claims field. He was highly regarded throughout the Canadian Insurance Claims Managers Association and very proud of his accomplishments across the Insurance industry. He was always there for his colleagues as a mentor, supporter and great friend.
As per his wishes there will be no service.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to CancerCare Manitoba.
We would like to thank Dr. Dawe, Lori Walker and the CancerCare team, as well as his physician Dr. Kevin Coates and all the others that crossed our path along the way.
Here's the rub Gido, we were not ready to let you go but are forever grateful for all our special times we have to cherish.
Friends and family are invited to share memories and condolences by visiting Larry's memorial page at
