HANNAH, Lawrence Gordon

Larry was born in Comox on May 10th 1948 and passed away in New Westminster Nov 13th 2011. He spent his early years in the Comox Valley, before moving to Vancouver to further his education. When he was young he loved to help his father, Gordon, and truly learned a good honest work ethic as well as superior mechanical knowledge. He later went on to enjoy a life with his antique engines, clock building, repairing anything that crossed his path and of course his computer.

Larry was a true testament to the family motto through hardships to higher places as he suffered a life altering injury in August 1963 rendering him a paraplegic. With the unconditional support of his parents he managed to live a full life. He worked hard at his rehabilitation and with a strong will and great determination he was able to achieve a higher education and went on to work in Electronics at BCIT.

While in Vancouver Larry met his wife Jean and they enjoyed 37 years. He had many varied interests. To know Larry was truly an honor as he was a great friend to many and a very knowledgeable man.

Predeceased by his mom Alice and good friend Garth he leaves his father Gordon, sister Sharon (Bob), his lifelong friend Jake (Colleen) and his many nieces and nephews.
