Larry was born and raised in Saskatchewan. He did his college studies in Calgary Alberta at Mount Royal College in Community Recreational Administration. From 1971 – 1989, Larry devoted himself to recreation programs for children and adults with special needs. Among his many positions, he was Director of Camp Easter Seals at Watrous Saskatchewan, Provincial Recreation Director for Saskatchewan Abilities Council and the Special Needs Director for the City of Regina, Parks and Recreation department. He has always contributed as a community volunteer, holding senior positions with the Saskatchewan Mental Health Association, Regina Volunteer Centre and the United Way. Since the arrival of the Toronto Bluejays into major league baseball, Larry continues to be a hard core fan. His finest years as a fan were in 92 and 93 when the Jays won the World Series. Larry shares his love for the Saskatchewan Roughriders with his three sons. He loves to play golf and now fishing. In 1989, Larry joined the sales force with London Life, and subsequently Many Nations Financial Services, where his knowledge, personal dedication and reliability are appreciated by both clients and staff. Larry lives in Regina with his wife, Robin. They have four children, Carrie, Aaron, Jordan, and Alex.

Larry and Robin are also proud grandparents. Larry and his wife Robin have a new passion in their lives; they have become RV’ers and have been doing this since 2002. With all the travelling Larry does in a year he and Robin decided that it would be better for Larry to be able to have his home with him when he is up in Northern Alberta servicing his clients. In the summer you can see Larry and Robin and their puppies travelling the interior of B.C., and the Northern States. They have made so many new friends throughout Northern America and eagerly waiting till they are again back on the road to meet new friends and visit with old ones.
