We are saddened to learn of Larry’s passing.

Lawrence Knuckey Dyer

DYER, Lawrence Knuckey – A.K.A. Friendly Frog or Knuck. Larry Dyer beloved Husband of Sheila Dyer passed away on November 27, 2015 at the age of 75 years. Larry was bornMay 11, 1940 to Hollis and Violet Dyer. He was raised along with his younger brother Leon in Sutton, Quebec. He attended Sutton High school where he was a member of many clubs and organizations. He also played basketball and baseball on school teams. This is where he met and married the love of his life Sheila Doris Ashby from Montreal, Quebec. On advice from a family member Larry moved his family of 3 children west to Calgary in 1970 ending up in Pincher Creek a year later to work at Shell Waterton Complex. He worked there until his retirement in 1993 as a Laboratory Technician. Larry and Sheila also owned and operated Larry’s Greenhouses Ltd., providing the community with garden plants and flowers for over 20 years. Larry had a love of rebuilding old vehicles and would often be seen with a new project regularly. In all he owned or restored over 90 vehicles and never grew tired of it. He always enjoyed new adventures from car racing, hiking, 4 wheeling in Arizona, to Geocaching of which he is credited with over 12000 finds. He also enjoyed coaching and refereeing hockey and baseball in his younger days. When he finally retired from Shell, Larry and Sheila spent 6 months a year for the next 23 years in the Yuma, Arizona area where they accumulated many friends from all over the world. It was their home away from home. Larry was always quick with a joke or a story and kept his friends in stitches with some of the antics he would get up to, and he could remember every one of them and the reactions from everybody. He was always a real joker. He will be very much missed but will always be in our hearts and thoughts. Larry was predeceased by his daughter Linda Ann Dyer and his parents Hollis and Violet. He is survived by his wife Sheila, his daughter Donna Jackson (Darryl, Heather and Janine); his daughter Susan Dyer (Jim McMurphy and Melissa Martin and great-granddaughter Mackenzie); his son David Dyer (Lindsay, Travis and Trent) and his brother Leon Dyer (Beverly) from Ayer’s Cliffe, Quebec). Upon Larry’s request there will be no funeral. We are requesting in lieu of flowers that donations be made to the Windy Slopes Foundation, P.O. Box 2554, Pincher Creek, AB T0K 1W0 in Larry’s name. Larry will be cremated and his ashes buried in the Dyer family plot in Sutton, Quebec next to his daughter, parents and several generations of his family.
