March 30, 1956 – Calgary, Alberta
December 17, 2013 – Calgary, Alberta
Our dear, sweet, wonderful Larry, beloved husband of Maureen Flynn Best, suddenly passed away on December 17, 2013, surrounded by his loved ones.
Larry led a complete and fruitful life; loving husband, twin brother to Linda, cousin and “Best” friend. He loved to golf, travel, and spend time with his family and friends at the cabin in Windermere and long, long walks with his puppy Quinn by his side.
Living with unwavering integrity and humility he strived to make a difference through his work and volunteering. With their golden retriever, Quinn, Larry and Moe brought joy and laughter to the Pals Program which uplifted everyone at the Children’s Hospital. He firmly believed in the “Pawsitive” power of pet therapy. Experiencing joy in living and laughter was important to Larry. The pride of obtaining a hole in one at his home course, the Elk’s, was a moment to remember. Larry lived with passion; he loved great adventures with motorcycles, Segway’s, zip-lining and sailing. His gentleness, wisdom and caring nature was felt by all those who knew him.
Predeceased by his mother and father Ethel and Jack Best and sister Janice Horrell, and numerous cherished aunts, uncles and cousins and eastern in-law’s and relatives.
Special thanks to the Emergency Staff at the Foothills Hospital and especially Nurse Catherine and Dr. Teresa Kieser.
