Larry Fredric William Hoath passed away peacefully on Tuesday, December 17, 2013 at the age of 72.
Larry is survived by 2 daughters: Debbie (Richard) Berubé of Falkland, BC and Kimberley Hoath of Saskatoon, SK, 14 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren, his brother Ron (Susan) Hoath and his sister Phyllis (Albert) Johnson. He was preceded in death by his parents Fred and Isabel Hoath, sons Larry Hoath Jr. and Carl Hoath, and his brother Fred Hoath Jr.
Larry spent his youth on the family farm at the base of Fernie Mountain. At the age of 19 he joined the Navy, serving on the aircraft carrier Bonaventure. He wore many hats during his working career; logger, fisherman, beachcomber, and house mover. Larry was a great “backyard” mechanic and given a piece of wire, he could fix anything. He had a great love for the ocean and because of that requested his ashes be scattered there.
A Celebration of Life was held at the Trinity Pentecostal Tabernacle on Saturday, December 21st.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association.
