TROWBRIDGE, LARRY ‘SNIPER’
August 23, 1935 ~ June 5, 2018
Larry was born on August 23, 1935 in Riverhurst, Saskatchewan to Richard George and Celia Eileen (Myers) Trowbridge. He was the eldest of five children.
Larry started working at Gardner Dam in 1958 and later with the Municipality of Gouldtown, SK where he met, fell in love with and married his wife of 55 years, Anne (nee Hildebrand) Trowbridge on June 29, 1962. Together they raised three children: Lessa Mae, Norma Jean and Steven Richard.
Larry continued to work road construction in Northern Saskatchewan. In 1968, he moved his family and took employment with the Allan Potash Corporation relocating to Elstow in 1972 where he remained until his passing. He retired in 2000 after 32 years of service.
Larry was an adventurous person enjoying many years of chuck wagon and chariot racing. He actively pursued outdoor adventures, hunting, fishing and snowmobiling. He especially enjoyed the time spent camping and sitting around a campfire with his family, extended family and many friends. To know Larry is to truly know what is no longer here.
