Larry Calvin Coleman

February 4, 1956October 24, 2020

Larry Calvin Coleman at the Ottawa Civic hospital surrounded by his loving family on October 24th, 2020 at the age of 64 years after a short but courageous battle with cancer. He leaves behind his loving wife of 42 years Estelle (nee Marcil). Devoted dad to Ryan Coleman and Kristen Beaulac (Patrick). Doting Grampa to Rya, Koen and Wes Beaulac. Cherished brother of Cheryl Besaw (Alan) and Barb Sauve (Steven). Loving Uncle to Tara Cordes, Melissa and Matthew Sauve, Michael, Sarah and Jessica Besaw, Lisa Jones and Sara Kowal. Predeceased by his parents Bill and Vivian Coleman and brother Billy. Larry grew up in Cornwall and attended General Vanier High School. He worked for many years at Domtar. Following the Mill Closure he worked as a steam Engineer in the Ottawa PSWG plant until retirement this April. He will be remembered as a kind and gentle soul with an unshakeable positive outlook on life, even throughout his journey with cancer. A lifelong Toronto Maple Leafs fan and loved all things hockey. Larry always made time to connect with those around him and was always quick to lend a hand or an ear to listen. His sense of humour and generosity were second to none. He prided himself on his lawn and loved to spend time outside working on the flower beds. Larry’s greatest joy was spending time with his family, especially playing with his beloved grandchildren.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions all services are private. Funeral arrangements entrusted to the M. John Sullivan Funeral Home. As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated by the family.

Sincere condolences to Estelle, Cheryl and Barb anf families from Bill and Jayne ( Greer). We are Tara's aunt and Uncle from Bradford and met some of you at Tara and Murray's wedding. It was a wonderful moment to meet some of Tara's birth family and to talk about our shared experiences regarding her life with your family and ours. She spoke so lovingly of your parents and especially of Larry, so we were very sad for her to have to lose him in her life a second time! We wish you solace and peace in your memories of Larry and all that was so special about him.

My deepest condolences to Estelle, Ryan, Kristen and family. It saddened me to learn of Larry's passing, his calling came much too early. I first meet Larry when he was working at the Bath Road A&W in Kingston, this was shortly after you two started dating. My first impression of Larry was what a great guy and he had to be if you chose him. As the years passed and our families grew, I could see what a great husband, best friend to you, and dad to Ryan and Kristen, he was. Larry had the most soft spoken, positive manner, the kind of person, you will always remember.
If you believe in angels Estelle, Larry will be one of the great ones too!
Estelle, I know you also are a very positive person and with your family, you will remain strong through this change in your family life.
Our thoughts are with you,
John and Brian Schwerdtfeger

My deepest condolences to Estelle and Family. I met Larry ten or so years ago while playing hockey together. My position as a defence men watched Larry skate by me with ease many times. He was as good a hockey player as he was a good person. We shared many lunches together and was very supportive of me during my trials with cancer.He was a very positive person and will be extremely missed by our Hockey Family.
