It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of Lawrence Orest Michael Harmata on Aug 1, 2021, in Langley at 88 years of age.
Growing up in Chipman Alta, Larry left to play hockey in the Peace Region at the age of 16 where he was a top scorer, earning many fans and awards. He moved to Smithers BC in 1966 where he worked for GM and John Deere dealerships and continued to play hockey. He moved to Vernon in 1980 where he joined the Vernon Golf and Country Club and played hockey for the Moonshiners.
He leaves to remember his loving wife Beth and stepdaughters Catherine and Lesley (Jean Marc), his children Kelly (Pat), Wendy (Roger) and Kevin and his brother Ken (Lorraine). He greatly enjoyed his 8 grandchildren, as well as his extended family.
He is predeceased by his parents Theodore and Amelia and brother Eugene. Larry was a proud and gentle man. He loved and held close his family and friends…..And then there was golf.
A memorial service for family and friends will be held Saturday August 14th, 2021 at 2pm, Vernon Golf and Country Club.
