Condolences & Memories (5 entries)
Condolences to Bernice and family. Our family enjoyed Larry's sense of humor and kindness at family gatherings. Sorry for your loss. Lesiuk Family - Lena, Brenda and Brian (Karen). - Posted by: Lesiuk Family (Relatives) on: Nov 07, 2022
I was very sorry to hear of Larry's passing. I remember when Larry and Bernice came over to my family's home in Wpg and asked me to a bridesmaid at their wedding. I was so excited and happy to be asked. It was the coldest wedding I had ever been at. There was one of those May snowstorms on their wedding day but that did not dampen any of the celebrations. It was a lovely wedding. Always kept in touch with Christmas cards and visits when we were in Wpg. You are all in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. - Posted by: Susanne Sandy (nee Leadbeater) (Daughter od Ruth and Roy Leadbeater) on: Nov 06, 2022

My first job out of school was working at Ogilvies. Remember Larry well as quite a character. He married a wonderful gal and my thoughts are with Bernice and her family. - Posted by: Victor Laird (acquaintance) on: Nov 05, 2022
