    "Larry was such a good man, and I loved spending time with him,since he first came to stay with Jim and Mom. His laugh was so heart warming and I will always be thankful that I got to enjoy both good and bad times with him. Knowing that he is no longer in pain and now he is free of his body, he can walk around Heaven all he wants and now knows no fear. God, I ask that you bless Larry now that he is with you. Let him know much happiness and now that he is with all his loved ones in Heaven, let Larry be able to do all the things that he was not able to do here on Earth. Larry, you are now free from your body and can now do all that your Heart desires. Much Love "Buddy". Till we meet again."

Larry Kaarto Born In: Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada Born: November 17th, 1946 Passed in: Dundas, Ontario, Canada Passed on: August 12th, 2017 Kaarto, Larry Hubert; born 17 Nov 1946, died in Dundas ON Aug 12th, 2017. Larry was a devoted son to his late mother Elsie. He lived most of his life in Sydney and will be familiar to patrons of the Prince Street shopping mall and especially those who frequented the bowling alley there. A child of God, Larry was an innocent who trusted almost everyone he encountered and was always quick to offer his help in whatever he way he could. He spent his early years in Westmount where he learned his Latin responses to serve as an altar boy in Holy Rosary Church. In Westmount Larry formed a loving relationship with his favourite “Aunt Til” (Tillie Lewis), a relationship that lasted a lifetime. In Sydney in his later years he returned to living with his Mom where he was a happy and devoted son. Upon his mother’s passing Larry found it difficult to accept how his life was now changed. Larry wanted very much to stay in Cape Breton and was fortunate to live in the care of Walter and Bernice Burgess for over two years. Larry also enjoyed the support and kindness of close family friend Mary Jones. For the last three years Larry resided with his brother Jim Kaarto and wife Nancy in Dundas. Larry was comforted in his last hours by Jim and Nancy’s eldest daughter, Tina Catania, as the family took turns in their vigil. Cremation has taken place.
