I was so saddened to learn of Larry’s passing. The world has lost a beautiful soul. As a vocalist and musician, I had the pleasure of sharing eight years with Larry touring with his bands on the road extensively throughout Ontario and all the way to Saskatchewan and back. We also spent four years entertaining as house bands at popular night clubs in Niagara Falls on Clifton Hill, Lundy’s Lane and Niagara-on-the-lake. Larry was a very talented entertainer with a wonderful personality, amazing wit and kind heart. He touched the lives of countless people throughout his journey. I shall be forever grateful. Love always, Robbie
Marie- may God’s Blessings watch over you and give you comfort.

I am so very sad to hear of Larry’s passing. We go back many years to the 60’s and 70’s when he was the drummer for Beau Hannon and Mike Roberts and the Legends. He made us laugh and became a really good friend to me and my late husband, Dave Speck, a 2nd cousin. After Dave passed away, he was very supportive and was a good friend. I knew his entire family who were all wonderful people. Rest in Peace Larry, you will be missed.
