  1. We first met Larry & Marilyn in 1992 and we became great friends. Although Larry was a quiet man he was always there when we needed help or advice especially when it came to woodworking. He was always remodelling and loved to work with wood and his home reflected his ability to be creative. His death has left an enormous void in the lives of all those who called Larry a Friend.
    Larry, Ted and I will truly miss you but one day we will see each other again.

  2. Oh Rhonda, I am so very sorry for your loss! I can only hope that the love of your family soothed your soul. I remember your dad from the Montrose days. He was a good man!

  3. Losing someone we love is the hardest thing we’ll ever experience, but knowing that you have been able to share in Uncle Larry’s life and in his love will hopefully help you get through this time.
    I remember Uncle Larry as one of the hardest working men that I’d ever met, but he was still quick to offer his help if someone needed it. Trenton was never the same after you all moved out west. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  4. Even though you are gone you will never be forgotten. We have fond memories of your love and kindness for all your family members. We are sending our love and prayers to your family.

  5. To the Robertson family I am so sorry for your loss. My love and thoughts are with you all xoxo

  6. Sorry for the loss… my condolences to all family and friends of Larry. May he rest in peace. He will be missed.
