Lawrence K. Verigin

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Lawrence K. Verigin on July 25, 2014.

A long time resident of Nelson and a graduate from L.V. Rogers high school, Larry continued his education in Washington state to become a talented draftsman. He then returned to Nelson where he excelled in the forestry industry around the Kootenay region. He was active in life, spending time fishing and gardening and perfecting his canning abilities with salsas and jams. A fan of classic car and motorbike culture, he would attend many shows and collected models of his favourite rides. He is survived by his sons Bob and Kelly Verigin, daughter Lana Verigin, and sister Sharon Shortt. We wish to thank the Nelson and Trail district hospital for the care they provided during his final days. We would also like to thank the Thompson funeral service. At the request of Larry, no formal service will be held. A celebration of life will soon be announced. Condolences may be sent to Thompson funeral service at
