Obituary Condolences

Larry John Stevens 1955-2011 HOOSICK FALLS, NY Larry J. Stevens of Hoosick Falls, N.Y., went home to God on Wednesday, November 2nd, at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon, N.H., after a long illness. He was the cherished husband of Dianne Bingham Stevens and is also survived by his parents, John and Marge Stevens, his brother, Jerry Stevens, and several aunts, uncles and cousins. Larry was a graduate of Bennington College and received his Masters Degree in Urban and Environmental Planning from RPI. He worked in the financial offices of several medical facilities through the years including St. Mary's, Seton, Southwestern Vermont Medical Center, and his last position as a financial specialist at the Vermont Veterans' Home in Bennington, Vt. Because of his caring, outgoing personality, he made many lasting friendships at each of his places of employment. Larry loved relaxing beside the Great Sacandaga Lake, gardening, antiquing, reading, listening to his eclectic collection of hundreds of CDs, and the company of his pets, including his three beloved Great Pyrenees. But one of Larry's greatest passions was his love and appreciation of historic buildings, and one of his proudest accomplishments was saving Delaney's Hotel, a 160-year-old structure in North Hoosick, N.Y., from demolition. He and his wife, Dianne, fought for 5 years to save it, and then finally purchased it themselves and devoted 20 more years of their lives to stabilizing the building and beginning its restoration. And nothing made Larry happier than seeing the restoration continuing in the very capable hands of its new owner. MEMORIAL SERVICE: A memorial service will be held on Saturday, November 26th, at 1 p.m. at the First Baptist Church on Main Street in Hoosick Falls. Donations in Larry's memory may be made to the National Trust for Historic Preservation or to the ASPCA.
