Larry Allen Jollymore
It is with profound sadness that we announce the loss of Larry Allen Jollymore, 68, of Elmsdale, NS. Larry passed away on March 26, 2021, at the Colchester East Hants Health Centre surrounded by his loving family.
Larry was born in Toronto, ON and was the baby of the family, the son of the late William and Elvina (Smith) Jollymore. Larry spent most of his youth in River Hebert, NS. He moved to Ottawa, ON in 1975 to complete his training in Air Traffic Control/Flight Service where he worked as a dedicated employee until his retirement from NAV Canada in 2007.
Larry married the love of his life, Debbie (Linkletter) in 1975 and they embarked on their Ottawa adventure as newlyweds and continued as such for more than 45 years. He enjoyed many adventures throughout this time with his best friend. He was very proud to be father to his three children: Trina (Kenny) Clarke, Melanie (Andrew) MacDonald, and Adam (Jamie Lynn Proctor), and was a very proud Papa to his grandchildren Hannah, Landen, Jenna, Bryce, Lily, Reese and Ellie.
He was the loved baby brother and is survived by his siblings Deanna (Fred) Woodworth, Marlene (Hilsen) Kierstead, Bill (Vickie) Jollymore, Judy Jollymore, and Sandy (Gordie) Landry. He will also be greatly missed by his brother in law Alan (Carol) Linkletter and sister in law Lisa White. He was predeceased by his brother Darrell, his father and mother William and Elvina Jollymore, father and mother in law Lester and Joan Linkletter, and brothers in law David Linkletter and Peter White.
Besides the adventures spent at the cottage every summer with his loving wife and family (and all those who came to stay), Larry loved to hunt and fish, spending time all over New Brunswick and Nova Scotia but especially treasured the times at Spicer’s Cove with his father. Being out in the woods was always his happy place. He also loved to build and create things, and was always working on or tinkering with something.
Larry will always be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. He was always there to lend a hand to anyone who needed it and willing to help with anything to be there for those he treasured.
