Larry Dean Staecey

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Larry Dean Staecey on Wednesday, September 12, 2012 at the age of 55. Larry was born in Kelowna, B.C. on May 02, 1957. He leaves his devoted wife of 19 years Theresa, daughter Laresa, son Larry Jr., mother Helen, and sister Glenda, all of Fruitvale, B.C. He was predeceased by his father Larry Stanley Staecey.

Larry was loved and respected by not only his family, friends and neighbors, but by many others who had the good fortune of crossing paths with him, including all of his colleagues at AMEC and FORTIS. He enjoyed “puttering around”, designing, building and making things work, the outdoors, dirt biking, camping, hiking, building, gardening, being with family, and having fun with his many skills. Larry touched the lives of many people with his smile, conversation, sly jokes and maintained his trademark sense of humor throughout his courageous battle. Special thanks for the outstanding professional care and compassion provided by the many doctors, nurses and lab staffs. He will be missed by all. Until we meet again… Always remembered, always loved.

A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, October 13, 2012 at 1:00 PM. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 3585 Laburnum Drive, Trail, BC. Gwen Ziprick of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with arrangements.
