October 4 1957- January 3 2016
Larry passed away peacefully at Burnaby General Hospital after a lengthy battle with cancer. Larry is survived by his mother Margaret Adams, sisters Lauri Adams- Jensen, Janice Adams-Ferguson and nephew Jay Ferguson. Predeceased by father Conrad Adams.
Although Larry lived in a silent world he didn’t let his deafness stop him, he attended Jericho Hill School for the Deaf and Blind from the time he was 4 1/2 years old until his graduation in 1975. Larry was extremely independent and lived most of his life in Burnaby and New Westminster area. He had worked for B.C.I.T for 7 years as a kitchen assistant which he enjoyed and was proud of. Larry loved to garden take long walks, and most of all loved his cats. He also enjoyed action packed movies, car shows and would laugh out loud when watching Happy Days and the Beverly Hillbillies.
Many thanks to the Doctors and Nurses of the Burnaby Hospital, and the councillors and interpreters of the Well Being Program for the deaf and blind. Special thanks to Patti Dolby of the Well Being Program and dearest family friend Kathy Murray.
There will be no service as to Larry’s request, in lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Western Institute for the Deaf.
