Dobinson, Lawrence Edward
Dec 30, 1947 – Apr 12, 2005
Larry passed away with family and friends by his side; engulfed in love. He was predeceased by an infant nephew, Scott, his grandparents, father Jarvis, stepfather Pete, and three uncles. Surviving and missing him tremendously already are his mother Mary, brother Wayne (Linda), wife Debbie, his four “angels” (as he always referred to his daughters) Tami (Brad) Schaefer, Jennifer (Scott) McKenney, Denice & Kim aka “pig-pig” (Jeremie). Granddaughters Jessica & Spencer and grandson Carter, nephew David (Sandra), niece Karen (Todd), great nieces Emma & Allison, great nephew David (Sandra), niece Karen (Todd), great nieces Emma & Allison, great nephew Zack, and mother-in-law Joan.
He was born in London, Ontario and raised on a dairy farm. From a very young age he loved playing hockey. For 40 years Larry was a dedicated and safe truck driver. In 1990 he moved his family to the Comox Valley and loved the mountains, ocean and all of nature’s beauty the valley offers. Larry loved life and has always been a fun-loving, trustworthy man devoted to his family & well respected by all who knew him. His final words of love for his family, asking us to reach deep down inside to stay strong and to move on with life is so typically Larry.
Dad – you have been, by far, truly the most wonderful dad a girl could want. We love & respect you far more than words can – from your four angels. Hon, I am honored to have been your wife. We have shared so many of “life’s experiences” together, and have stayed best friends – from your ”bride”. God, please give us the strength we need to carry on without this wonderful man on earth with us.
Private cremation arrangements entrusted to Comox Valley Funeral Home and Crematorium, 1101 Ryan Road. Should friends wish, donations in Larry’s memory to a charity of choice would be appreciated.
