September 10 1942 - January 11 2021

Larry (Lawrence) lived his life with dignity and outright honesty. He was an inventor, creator, family man and true friend. He provided for his family and left his sons with skills that would carry them throughout their lives .

He was a dedicated husband and a loving Grampy. As a dear friend summed up his life “the things that man knew”. He was a steadfast employee at Telus ( AGT) for over 35 years. He was a fearless go kart driver for several years and he designed and built our cabin at the lake that we enjoy to this day.

He leaves to mourn his loving wife of 54 years, Judy, his sons Mark and Mike, daughter-in-law Susan and granddaughters Zoë, Zara, Mia and Taya.

He was predeceased by his father Joseph Salamandick in 1986, loving mother Lena Salamandick (nee Dick) 2008, brother Kenneth Salamandick 1996, brother Harold Salamandick 2006, niece Lisa Salamandick in 2009 and sister Joanne Brackenbury in 2020.

He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Judy, sons Mike and Mark, sister Doreen (Craig) Flewelling of Bowden, and sister in law Jan Salamandick, sister-in-law Mary Jo Gibbons, Sheila McRae of Pincher Creek, along with numerous nieces and nephews and loving friends,many of whom belonged to the Edmonton Remote Control Society. And our “lake family “ who we hold dear in our hearts. And neighbours, and old friends from Lacombe Alberta.

A family celebration of life will be held at a later date.

  7. My dear friend Judy, I am so sad for you missing your beloved Larry, I’ll keep you in prayer for peace and comfort🙏

  8. Jude, Mark and Mike, I am so sorry for you and your family’s loss. For many years I was fortunate enough to spend time with Larry and your family at your kitchen table and even at your beautiful cabin and had the pleasure of listening and learning from Larry about so much, but it was Larry’s outlook and quiet wisdom that I remember most fondly. My condolences on your loss.

  9. Judy and family; so very sad to hear of Larry’s passing. I think of him often. He was a great Lead Hand on the first crew I worked with at “AGT”. He was very mechanically minded; I used his talents long after we left the Inst Dept to replace the track on an old snowmobile I had……Hope you are all doing ok.
    Sincerely, Dennis and Carol McKee.

    • Judy and family,
      I worked on Larry’s crew many years ago and similar fond memories of what a kind, caring, calm and friendly man Larry always was. He passed on his skills passionately to many of us which we carry with us today. I recall hitting a metal pin with my lawnmower years ago, bending the crankshaft. I was about to throw it away until Larry took it home and pressed it straight! It ran for many years afterwards! I am very proud to have known him!

  10. My condolences to the family. I have known Larry since 1974 when he taught me my basic installation course when I started at AGT. Our paths crossed years later in Methods where he we always shared stories of family and life. Larry was always a man of integrity and class. I learned so much from this man for his love of life and the deep pride he had for his family. He will be missed.

  11. Larry certainly was a man to remember— 1 of the good guys @ AGT

  12. My condolences to Judy, Mike and Mark for I know how you feel my mother passed away Jan. 21. Larry was my boss at AGT and one day welded my nail crimper with no problem. They say the true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination. Larry had both. He will truly be missed and not forgotten. Tomorrows a new day for us and a new beginning for Larry. Take care

  13. Our condolences to Judy & Family. So sorry to here about your loss. Joan & I have known Larry for many years from out camping together. I worked with Larry at AGT/Telus for many years, and had Larry as my manager. Larry was a great thinker and always fixing something at home or for someone else. God Bless you all and may his memories live on forever.,

  14. Dear Judy,

    Further to our Sept. 65 reunion (which I was unable to attend), Joyce Pope Sharp and I had a lovely telephone visit today in which we were wondering about you.

    When Doreen’s message came, I looked for you in the address list and found you, so I hope you receive this message of friendship and condolences. I also clicked your name on Google where I learned about your husband and your loss.

    It would be lovely to be in contact again; I have good memories of you.

    I hope this finds you well. Where do you live?
