It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Larry Dale Slind of Saskatoon SK on Tuesday, November 29, 2017. Larry was born in Kelvington SK, July 24, 1954 and was raised in Archerwill, SK. He moved to Saskatoon as a young man, where he continued to live until his passing. A celebration of Larry’s life will be held in Cherished Memories Life Story Room. A reception will follow in the Cherished Memories Reception Area, Martensville, SK at 1:00pm on December 4th. Larry spent many enjoyable hours camping, fishing and snowmobiling at Greenwater Provincial Park. He had a great love of cars and Larry and Marcia attended many car shows showing off his 442. Larry had a great love of children and was everyone’s friend. Many memories around the camp fire of Larry teasing his nieces and nephews, as well as own children. Larry worked for Boart Longyear for many years, in the north, diamond drilling and then in the shop in Saskatoon. He was a very hard worker and a great mentor to all. Larry and Marcia spent many summers camping. In 1984 they drove to the Yukon, they travelled with Larry’s Mom and Dad and Aunty Beaulah. They were gone for 3 weeks, Larry did all the driving and setting up the tent trailer everynight. I am sure he needed a vacation after that trip. They made many trips to BC visiting family and friends. When they travelled they always had an extra nephew to keep Kevin company. In recent years as their health deteriorated, they would travel around Saskatchewan and spent lots of time in Porcupine Plains visiting Larry’s mom. Larry was recently predeceased by; his wife of 36 years, Marcia; as well as son, Jarl Slind; father, Edwin Chadney; Father, Obert Slind; baby sister, Lori Wynne Slind and numerous Aunts and Uncles. Mourning his passing is; his daughter, Cynthia English(Randy McDonald); son, Kevin Slind; Granddaughter, Andrea Evans(Nick Longpre) and great grandson Marshall Longpre; Mother, Shirley Slind; sisters, Debbie Malekoff(Jeff), Alison Davis(Milt), and Rita Bourgonje(Fred); nieces and nephews, Jamie, Kris, Laurie, Steven, Jared, Aimee, Brenon, Tyson; as well as great nieces and nephews Larry will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
