It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Larry on January 8, 2021. His long battle with dementia and short battle with covid has come to an end.
Larry was born in Weyburn, SK. on December 26, 1951. He was the second son of Dan and Jean Weber.
At the age of seventeen, he joined the Canadian Armed Forces. He was a proud soldier and passionate about his life choice. He spent the first five years as a military police officer before remustering into the physical education trade. This was where he really excelled. He felt very proud and privileged to have been part of the Canadian peacekeeping contingent in both Cyprus and the Golan Heights. Larry treasured that blue beret.
Wendy and Larry met in November of 1973, were engaged before Christmas, and were married the following June. Fourteen months later their first daughter Jill was born. In 1978 their second daughter Jamie followed. They were the light of his life. One his princess, the other his tomboy. As a family, they moved all around the country on various postings.
As the grandchildren arrived, he was always in the seats for dance, hockey, baseball, lacrosse, and anything else they were participating in. They were his second passion and he was so proud of them.
We can't speak of Larry without talking about his love for his friends. He so enjoyed time spent playing hockey, fishing, hunting, going to car shows, or just hanging out with " the boys". If any of them needed help he would be there in a minute. During this crazy journey they were always there to help us along the way. We couldn't have done it without them. We are truly grateful.
Larry was predeceased by his parents, Dan and Jean Weber, as well as his brother-in-law Darryl Lepla.
He is survived by his loving wife Wendy, daughters Jill Weber and Jamie (Craig) Forget, and his grandchildren Trinity, Bradon, Trey, and Carson. He is also survived by his siblings Rick (Flo), Brad, Karen (John), Laura (Sergej), and Darwin. As well he leaves behind his parents-in-law Bob and Marlene Lepla, sister and brother-in-law Kim and Harvey Douglas and numerous nieces and nephews.
Much love and many thanks to our Southwood Care Centre, Palliser Unit family. We were so fortunate to have Larry surrounded by such loving, kind people. You go above and beyond every single day.
There will be gathering of family and friends at a later time.
Finally at peace. Finally free.
