BUERGER, Larry (Lawrence) Dennis

It is with great sadness and much love that we say goodbye to our beloved father, grandpa, brother, nephew, and friend, who passed away on May 22, 2020, at 70 years of age.

He will be forever remembered by: his children Cheryl (Darren) Blouin, Katherine Buerger, and Meghan (Josh) Klassen; siblings Ernie (Judy), Christine, Ron, Diane, Darlene (Randal), Regina (Gerard), and Linda (Marty); grandchildren Alexander, Max, Liviya, Nolan, Helaina, and Mattais; goddaughter Karen; and many nieces, nephews, and friends.

Larry loved spending time visiting parks, camping, and fishing. From a young age, he always had a camera in hand and captured decades of memories in pictures, film, and video. His passion for motor vehicles inspired him to become a Heavy-Duty Mechanic, and pursue a 40-year career with the City of Edmonton. In the last few years of his life, he fulfilled a wish to own a convertible car, and could be seen driving it all year round.

He was predeceased by his parents Emil and Mary, and infant sister Gloria. The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to St. Joseph’s Auxiliary Hospital for their kind support and care shown to Larry during his stay. If you wish to make a memorial donation in Larry’s name, please consider the Arthritis Society of Canada.

Family, I am so sorry to hear that Larry passed away. We grew up together in Newbrook. My memories of Larry and the Buerger family in town was so much fun like going to visit the town cousins. My sincere condolences to all of you.

Linda & Marty (Aimee, Katrina, Lena)

Dear Cheryl, Katherine and Meghan. What a loving and moving tribute to your Dad. Your words bring many fond memories to mind. I saw a picture in one of my photo albums and yes, there’s Larry with a camera in his hand. And we remember hearing the soft purr of a pretty fancy convertible outside – Larry looked mighty handsome behind the wheel with a smile on his face. We took a drive to the local park today and Lena recalled how Uncle Larry took her fishing. We have some funny memories on taking that picture of her first fish. An awesome brother – we were lucky to share many visits together and Larry and Marty shared many stories. Larry was generous with his love and kindness and always wanted the best for everyone. Aimee, Katrina and Lena remember his Sunday visits with fondness. There sometimes was a good debate going on but we always parted with hugs all around and ‘I love you’s’. We loved him dearly and will miss him everyday. Your Dad lives on in our hearts – his love will shine brightly through us when we’re showing kindness to others or when we’re making someone laugh. My heart is filling with so many memories right now. God Bless you and your wonderful families. Your Dad was so proud of each and every one of you. He loved his grandchildren dearly and enjoyed watching them grow into the fine young people they are now. Much love. Hugs.

Dustin, Tara & sons
