Obituary

Vallee, Laurent “Larry”

Laurent Vallee (“Larry”) passed away peacefully on Sunday October 27, 2019 in the presence of his loving wife Connie in the beautiful surroundings of the Hospice Wellington. Guelph Ontario.

Larry was a devoted husband to Connie who he affectionately referred to with pride as "My Babe". After his many years of soul searching and travel, Larry met Connie and a love was born. In 2002, after a brief courtship they were married in an intimate ceremony. This marriage formed a bond in which together they overcame life's struggles and shared its joys including the birth of nephews and a niece to whom Larry became an adored uncle. Larry and Connie were happy to share their lives with a small coterie of close friends and family over the past 20 years.

Larry will be remembered as a loyal friend to all those whose lives he touched. He will also be remembered for his natural curiosity, sense of adventure, his humor, integrity, his deep seated values, honesty, his kind heartedness and quiet acts of generosity.

Larry had many passions which included sailing, diving, motorcycling, fishing, travelling, reading, cooking, languages and repairing broken things. These many interests and talents allowed him to connect with a broad range of people both young and old, and even overcoming language barriers.

He was an entrepreneur, teacher, an avid story teller, jokester, and philosopher.

Larry is survived by his wife Connie and his three siblings, Claudine (Richard Elton), Serge and Ginette Vallee.

A heartfelt thanks to the doctors and nurses at Guelph General Hospital, especially Dr. Shafir, and the staff at Hospice Wellington for their compassionate care and support in Larry’s last days.

Cremation has taken place. A private celebration of life to be held at a future date for family and close friends.

If so desired, donations in Larry’s memory may be made to Hospice Wellington.

The family encourages everyone to share a special memory of Larry on the funeral home website.

I am feeling so down since hearing about the loss of such a wonderful human being. I can take some comfort in knowing that at least he is in a better place. Such a genuine and cheerful soul and he should always be remembered as such. I really wish I could have seen you one last time and had a proper farewell. I never really got to tell you how great of a person you were Larry, and although we did not spend much time together, you put a smile or made me laugh every time i saw you. This is the mark of a wonderful soul. Connie you are blessed to have been Larrys partner in life, and im sure there were never much dull moments being partners with such a beautiful soul. You guys were really made for each other on this earth and complimented each other so perfectly. Larry I am sure you are looking down on everyone and smiling as we grieve our loss. Rest In Peace Larry. Heartfelt Condolences to the family. The world has lost a beautiful soul.

Larry always brought a sense of humour to every family gathering and conversation. The kids loved his stories and his jokes.....even in French! One of the best memories we have together are the times that he and our son James cooked together. James enjoyed learning and cooking with Larry and was extremely fond of his uncle.

Larry was always respectful and kind. He was a gentle soul with a beautiful heart.

You will be so missed Larry -- Laurent.

I have been heart broken since hearing the news of Larry's passing ..he was an amazing man .Connie you were the love of Larry's life his eyes would sparkle just with the mention of your name I am so so sorry for your loss. We were neighbors in Ste Anne's all those years and I will truly miss him and his amazing stories about his life. Also when we would get together in your kitchen as Lawrence as I jokingly used to call him would cook up one of his amazing meat pies. Larry I can never thank you enough for stepping up to the plate for me when my wife Deb was hospitalized with her brain tumor. You took care of my dog Koby allowing me to spend as much time as I could with my wife at the hospital this kind gesture in my eyes I will never be able to thank you enough. Enjoy eternity my dear friend you are now in a place where there is no more pain and you can run again and dance with the wolves

My name is Ryan Schoor and I had the highest privilege of meeting, coming to know, and then having a friend for life with Larry. Larry was a meek and mild man with a BIG heart that you were just drawn to; he listened and was most concerned for others well being before his own. It is very hard in this world today to come across ones that are truly humble and follow their life's course in line with the Golden Rule that we "Treat others as you would want to be treated". Larry had so much experience and talent to learn from . . he was an engineer, inventor, entrepreneur, teacher just to name a few. And even with all that talent and experience you would think that a person like that would think highly of himself and yet . . no . . he wanted to know what you think and what you thought and treated you with value. It is true we all imperfect and thus are all going to make mistakes in our life's and Larry was no exception to this as he had his fair share of struggles but the difference is he chose not to focus on the negative and look at the positive in life and with each other. He always made the time to stay in touch and was always just a phone call away when you needed him. I stayed with Larry and Connie at their place in Montreal for over a week and his hospitality he and Connie showed me was again from the heart. Larry was always very punctual in making sure he had a home cooked dinner ready for Connie who was truly the love of his life which you could tell just by listening to him and watching him light up with joy just thinking about her. Larry will be truly missed and as a spiritual man myself I can't help but think of the verse at Revelation chapter 21 and verse 4 . . . "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." I truly believe that we will all one day see our Friend Larry again and I know he will be waiting for us with open arms as well. Myself, my wife Nancy, and my 2 Sons Alejandro and Liam all have our love and prayers with Larry and Connie.

Dear Connie:
I will always remember Larry's quick wit, great intellect, sense of fun, and the delicious meals he prepared for us, when I visited your home in Montreal. He always wanted to pamper me. Larry would always bring a smile to your face when he perfectly pronounced your name "Conceicao". But, most of all I remember that he made you laugh, and the love you both shared. Sending you lots of love and hugs xoxo Isabel
