FAIRFIELD: Larry died Monday, April 27, 2020, at the UVM Hospital after a courageous battle with Cancer.

He grew up in Bakersfield and graduated from Enosburg High School, class of 1979.  He also graduated from Champlain College. Larry being the youngest child grew up with nieces and nephews, so he was a very special uncle to all of them.

Larry loved plants and gardening, tending to approximately 100 house plants as well as several flower gardens outside. He was very proud of his family heritage back to the Mayflower. 

Larry leaves four sisters, Janice Fay, Lillian and Hugh Dudley, Connie Boylan, and Bonnie and Steven Collins; two brothers, Charles Tinker and partner, Dennis, James and Bonnie Tinker, and one brother-in-law, Russell Stone. Larry also leaves many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews, great-great-nieces and nephews, and one great-great-great-nephew as well as many cousins and friends.  He also leaves his canine family, Buck and Callie.
