In Loving Memory ~

Larry passed away peacefully with his family by his side on April 2, 2024.

Larry spent his life in the automotive business. Selling parts, then eventually opening his own business, Ladysmith Auto Supply. He ran the store until his retirement. He loved everything automotive, from sponsorship and watching cars at the track, to hosting and sponsoring classic car shows.

Larry also spent many of his later years before and after retirement volunteering within different groups, befriending and inspiring many.

Larry and his beloved wife Julie spent many years wintering in Mexico, their "Happy Place", where they met many friends and hosted many of their friends and families over the years.

Larry was predeceased by his parents Andrè and Marion Trahan and his brother Philip Trahan.

He leaves behind his children; Dean (Lori) Martin, Christina (Rob) Haslam and Angela Lang.

Larry was a huge supporter of his grandchildren; Jordan (Sienna) Martin, Jessica (Arnold) Speck, Blake Haslam, Tyson Trahan Lang and Riley (Marie) Trahan Lang.

Larry leaves behind his loving wife, Julie Anderson. Julie has 3 children and grandchildren who will also miss Larry; daughter Tara (Jonathan) Keeping, grandson Channing, daughter Tracy Keeping, granddaughters Elise and Sydnee and son Brent (Natasha) Keeping, granddaughters Cheyenne and Jayne.
