Larry Marlatt

July 16, 1948 – April 3, 2022
In loving memory ~
It is with profound sadness and deep love that the family of Larry Marlatt announce his peaceful passing in the Vernon, BC Hospital, due to complications from Parkinson disease.
Larry believed that life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways in a body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, “WOO HOO what a ride!”
Larry was born in Toronto but spent much of his adult life in British Columbia. His career was mainly spent as a Cartographer with NAV Canada. Larry was also an Auxiliary member with the Surrey RCMP as well as a scout leader, a community volunteer, an avid hiker and a softball umpire. He enjoyed playing crib and euchre.
Larry leaves behind his wife of 43 years Deborah (Vernon, BC), his daughters: Nicole (Marlatt) Coville (husband James) and Jacoba (Marlatt) Franks, Melissa (Marlatt) Nygaard (husband Wesley) and son Ryan Marlatt (wife Tanya), ten cherished grandchildren, three sisters LInda (Marlatt) Lemoine, Gail (Marlatt) BC, Betty (Marlatt) Blanks and friends across the country.
A celebration of life to be held 21 April 2022 in Vernon, BC.
