Larry Pasaluko passed from this world about seven pm. on Wednesday July 15, 2015 in the Comox St Joseph’s hospital. Many thanks to wonderful caregivers there.
Larry is survived by his wife of 62 years Alice, and daughters Pat, Gail, Joan and Chris, and sons Tony, Craig, and Larry Junior. Predeceased by his parents Peter and Ann, and infant daughter Sally. Survived by sisters Marjorie, Dorothy,
Patricia, and Chris.
Larry was born in Pine Falls, Manitoba in 1928. He served in the merchant marine during the war, and after the war in the Royal Canadian Navy. Larry used to send home souvenirs to family members from around the world. After the war he returned home to work in Pine Falls as a paper maker with Abatibi paper where his father worked as a millwright. He worked in the paper industry very successfully, quitting 13 times to travel, and always being rehired for his quality of service. Larry was an outdoorsman – a hunter, a fisherman, and BS’er. Larry’s main passions included hunting, fishing, golf, and his family (including his dogs). Larry will be remembered for his sense of humour, such things as the Dayglo fishing lure earrings; his Duck Dynasty ball cap; and driving to the golf course with a long wig and sunglasses to see his golf buddies. Larry never hesitated to share his strong political views with anyone through shared emails or letters to the editor via his L.H. Pas handle.
Donations in Larry’s memory may be addressed to the Heart and Stroke Association.
The family was blessed to be with Larry during his last hours and he will be long remembered.
A funeral mass was held at Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Chapel on July 22nd. Father George Helou.
