Larry HICKFORD Obituary

Larry was born and raised in Port Alberni, BC. He was predeceased by his parents, Les and Lil Hickford. He is survived by his wife of nearly 50 years, Debbie; two daughters, Amy (Dylan) and Kari-Lynn (Kevin); grandsons, Micheal and Nicholas; and three sisters, Karen (Greg), Joie (Paul), Leisa (Rick); many nieces and nephews; and his chosen brother, Ken (Shannon).

Larry was a heavy duty mechanic in the forestry industry while living in Campbell River with Debbie and raising his family. Debbie and Larry moved to Osoyoos for many years but due to his declining health, they moved home to Port Alberni in 2021 to be near family and friends.

Larry was hard working, but was always generous with his time when it came to others. He was the first person to offer help in any way he was able to give at the time. He was a great friend to many. He was very proud of his family. 

Through the years, Larry cultivated a vast network of friends and family, leaving his wife and daughters with a great legacy of wonderful people and what he called chosen family. He was loved by many, and he will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him. 

Larry passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family after a hard fought battle with complications from his lung transplant. 

The family would like to thank the care team at Vancouver General Hospital and the compassionate physicians and nurses at Royal Jubilee Hospital. They fought hard to keep him with us as long as they could. 

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
