Larry Willens(August 14, 1961 - November 2, 2012)

Larry Willens August 14, 1961 ~ November 2, 2012 MONTEREY - Larry died at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula on November 2, 2012 from complications of diabetes. Born and raised in Chicago, he left home at 18, spent a dozen years in the U.S. Army, and subsequently lived and worked in Florida and California for television stations as a camera man. His marriage ended in divorce, with no offspring, and he ultimately lost his job and spent his last 10-15 years homeless, living out of his vehicle. He remained a lifelong Chicago Cubs fan, and had a great passion for American film. A tremendous thank you to those involved in his hospital care, and especially the Community Hospital nursing staffs of Garden East and Terrace West, and the Community Hospital physical therapists, all of whom worked and struggled mightily with him throughout long and difficult hospital stays.
