This week on The Man Who Ate the Town Podcast, I talk for a minute or two about Larry Haglund. I knew Larry for only a short time, but we had a connection. I’m pretty sure anyone you spoke to about him would say the same thing. I don’t know that he knew any strangers and I doubt he many (if any) enemies. I would go in and we’d have a swipe or zing at each others’ expense and laugh and cut up. He would pull the chair out for me anytime he sat The BCPF and me (but not her, it was a running joke – and probably not just between the two of us) for brunch. Larry was a great soul; one of the
good best guys.
Sadly, Larry passed away on Saturday after a year of battling life and the elements. Every battle fought he did so with a smile. The pictures of him in the hospital show him joking and cutting up. That’s just Larry. To Mary, Shama, Tamis and Lillie (I didn’t know Shae but still…), and to all our friends at Mary’s Gourmet Diner who lost a big part of their life this past weekend, my love, happy thoughts and posi-vibes go out to all of you. Larry’s having fun wherever he is. Probably riding that danged motorcycle!

“Trapped in a mine that had caved in and everyone knows the only ones left were Joe and me and Tim. When they broke through to pull us free, the only ones left to tell the tale were Joe and me. Timothy, Timothy, where on earth did you go? Timothy, Timothy, God why don’t I know?” – “Timothy” (Holmes), sung to me on more than one occasion by my good friend, Larry.
