MUTUAL, Laurence Evan “Larry

February 3, 1957 – Edmonton, AB
June 12, 2014 – Calgary, AB

“HEY” is for horses. Laurence “Larry” Mutual passed in the night, now at rest, on Thursday June 12, 2014. Gone too soon at the age of 57. Remembered for visits to Ban-f-f and Lake Lousy, cheeseburgers in paradise, rocking to Rolling Stones, teaching tennis, and being everyone’s teddy bear. Born to a Leduc farm, raised in Edmonton, lived in Calgary. Albertan through and through, he found warmth clad in shorts, boat shoes, over a BBQ, whether in the icy oversized grip of winter or the soft lei of summer. Worked hard and played hard, perpetually with Hawaii and his kids on his mind. Younger days spent hoisting trophies with the Dirt Shooters, claiming King of the Mountain with a pair of skis, later being Dad with the 7th Street Gang. His ambition to conquer led him to take on massive engineering projects with Fluor, and monolithic Clive Cussler novels. Rest assured, wherever he is, he’s found a sandy beach in sunshine forgoing a hat and sunscreen, turning pink, an iDevice in hand, sharing a Viking-size pint with comic book heroes Thor and Odin. We miss you Larry, this Bud’s for you.

Celebration of Life will be held at McInnis and Holloway’s Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive SW, Calgary, AB) on Thursday, June 19, 2014 at 10:30 a.m. Optional Hawaiian attire, leis provided. In lieu of flowers, instead get some 16 oz ribeye steaks and cook them with your loved ones, take a picture, and send it to us. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Larry Mutual, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Calgary, AB, T2S 2L5, Telephone: 403-243-8200.

  9. My sympathies to the Mutual family from the Dimos’.
    Larry, (we called him Laurie back in the day), was the big kid next door that I played sports with any chance I got. Whether football and basketball in the summer, or hockey in the Mutual driveway in winter, (with Bill in net), I always enjoyed the challenge of playing with Laurie.
    He was a real nice guy.

    Alycia, Evan and family,

    We were shocked and saddened to hear about the sudden passing of your father. We have very fond memories of your dad; dating back about 30 years to the ‘early days’ at University of Alberta. He was quite a character!

    We were fortunate to have seen your dad quite recently. On that day, he expressed to us how proud he was of both of you. He was absolutely beaming when he spoke about both of you and your recent academic accomplishments.

    May your fond memories of your dad help you get through the dark days ahead. It is a difficult emotional journey when you lose a parent at such a young age and it will probably take a long time for your hearts to heal. May your fond memories of your dad help you get through the challenging days ahead.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you, and your entire family, at this time.

    Valerie and Steve Shannon and Brett and Reece Pardell
