2013 – Calgary, AB
Larry Frank Blomme beloved husband of Maria of Calgary, passed away after a short but courageous battle with pancreatic cancer on Sunday, May 26, 2013 at the age of 70 years.
Larry will be forever remembered for his incredible love for his family and his passionate ministry for Our Lady leading pilgrimages to Medjugorje for over twenty-seven years. His enthusiasm for traveling and meeting people all over the world allowed him unique experiences including camel riding, scuba-diving, parasailing and eventually getting his own pilot license. Larry accomplished everything he put his mind to, having a strong work ethic and even stronger opinion. His zeal for his faith empowered him to share his convictions everywhere he went. He was his happiest when he was praying before the Blessed Sacrament. We all love him and he will be missed but we know he is truly happy, as he could not wait to get to heaven.
Larry is surviced by his children and his grandchildren.
