I have just now been informed about the loss of Larry. This is with great regret as I got to know Larry, his brother Richard and Judith Johnson when I move to Winnipeg. From there I started to ski at Frost Fire from 1991 to 2013. All three named were the nicest and most helpful people you can think of. Every time I or my wife Zdenka needed any kind of help one of the three helped us and were always really friendly. For many many years, we also had a seasonal ticket at Frost Fire. Henry Goba
