Larry Wayne Marshall, 1947-2008
Larry Wayne Marshall, a long-time resident of Enilda, passed away Sept. 20 in High Prairie at the age of 61 years.
Born to Dorothy and Murray Marshall April 24, 1947 in McAuley, Man., Larry spent his childhood and early adult life living and working on farms. After marrying and fathering six children, Larry moved to Estevan, Sask. and worked for Harold Rowe Construction for six years. He later divorced.
In 1981, daughter Lisa was born. In 1983, he moved to McLennan where he worked at Falher Alfalfa Plant for close to a year.
Larry took a job at Carwald Concrete as a truck driver in 1984 and moved to Enilda. Daughter Melody was born one year later in 1985.
In December 2000, Larry married his longtime companion, Pearl St. Cyr. He remained at Carwald until he decided to start his own business called Larry’s Trucking, hauling vehicles for dealerships from Alberta to Manitoba. He also hauled for Triple G Trucking from British Columbia to Manitoba.
After being diagnosed with cancer, Larry returned to Carwald which was eventually bought out by Reimer Foundations Ltd. He continued to work until Aug. 26, 2008. Never complaining, and thinking only of his loved ones, he remained in hospital and battled courageously until he passed in the early afternoon of Sept. 20.
Larry is survived by: his wife Pearl; mother Dorothy; sister Trudy; brother Carey; children Les (Kim), Colleen (Bob), Dean (Yvonda), Delphine, Angela (Keith), Neil, Lisa, Melody; as well as 17 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
Donations can respectfully be made to the High Prairie and District Palliative Care or the Canadian Cancer Society in Larry’s memory.
