Larry was born on March 18, 1963, the fourth of six children to Lawrence and Margaret Lyons in Edmonton, Alberta. Larry worked for Alberta Health Services for 32 years as a red seal electrician before retiring earlier this year.
Larry married Patti in 1990 and they were blessed with six children and made their home just outside Fort Saskatchewan Alberta. Larry loved wood working and carpentry and with the help of his sons built their home in Sturgeon County. He passed on his passion for building and creating to all his sons. Larry loved music (the louder the better) and all things Irish. He was his daughter’s biggest fan. Larry could be counted on to be the ‘DJ” at any family function or just at a family campfire. He loved the lake and spending time at the ocean. Larry loved to travel and besides taking his family to Disneyland a number of times, he was most happy to have brought his family home to Ireland on two very memorable trips, the last one including his two oldest grandsons. Larry loved helping people and could always be counted on to help the underdog and any friend who needed a hand. During his retirement, he continued helping others by volunteering at the food bank.
Larry impacted every person he encountered in his life with his warm presence, contagious smile and kind nature. He held a special place in our hearts and will be greatly missed by family and friends near and far.
