Our beloved father was born in Kenora, Ontario. In his early years, resided in Wabaseemoong Independent Nations then later moved to Niisaachewan Anishinaabe Nation with his family. He took pride in the traditional way of life, by living off the land and sharing his knowledge and teachings. He enjoyed the outdoors hunting and fishing with his wife, sons and friends. Larry always looked forward to the season’s last fishing derby-The One Man Lake Walleye Classic. He loved dancing at powwows and was a renowned MC at traditional gatherings, ceremonies and events. While spending time with family he loved to laugh and enjoyed joking around.

He was a former correctional worker then became a police officer with Ontario First Nations Policing, former Chief for Niisaachewan Anishinaabe Nation, Mental Health & Addictions Worker with Kenora Chiefs Advisory and Indian Residential School Support Worker with Grand Council Treaty #3. He was a strong advocate of Truth & Reconciliation Commission of Canada for Anishinaabeg nationwide.
