April 6, 2012
Lawrence Edward Lathrop, son to Herb and Doris, lived June 4,1949 – March 29, 2012. Larry is survived by his siblings, Leslie, Dennis, Gerry and Anthony; loving wife of 40 years, Kathryn; sons, James and Benjamin; and grandchildren Sabrina, Andrea, Vivian and Xander. Larry was a great salesman for a large portion of his life and towards the end of his career he worked at Eagle Valley Children’s Home where he loved working with the children. He was a passionate Scouter that loved the outdoors and what the scouting program did for boys. He was also a member of the Knights of Columbus where he volunteered his time to help his community. Larry battled with Parkinson’s Disease for almost 30 years but this never gave him a negative outlook on life and he still lived life to the fullest for as long as he could. Larry was a wise and caring man that touched many lives, as well as a hero to his sons and he will be dearly missed by all his family and friends.

There will be a reception and celebration of life immediately following at the home of the family.
