Larry worked as a radio announcer for a long time, having worked in Swift Current, Saskatchewan; Winnipeg, Manitoba; Sault Ste Marie, Ontario; and Thunder Bay, Ontario. He received much pleasure using his ham radio, and had received his license for it many years ago. In his free time, Larry taught technology courses at Sault Ste Marie College. Larry also greatly enjoyed photography and had won many awards for his work.

Larry was predeceased by his parents Michael and Lillian Mandziuk. He is survived by his sister Linda McLean (Robert), nephew Aaron McLean (Darby), nieces Kristen Keown (Stephan) and Raegan Maley (Jessie), and his special little grand-nephew Elliot McLean.

Cremation has taken place. In memory of Larry, donations to St. Joseph's Foundation – Hospice Ward would be greatly appreciated.

I had the pleasure of working with Larry over several years in Sault Ste. Marie. He was the first morning host when Q104 changed to country. Waylon Jennings was his hero. Larry was a serious entertainer on radio- a personable professional. He pointed the station in its dominance for years to come. RIP Lar!

As a long time neighbour and friend on Sprague Street, I was saddened to hear of Larry's passing. Larry and I and Brian Ridley shared many good times together. I always wished that we had reconnected over the years.
Linda, I hope you're still benefiting from my math tutoring.

Hello Linda: We are very sorry for your loss. We didn't know Larry well as an adult, but certainly growing up, we remember him well. I hope you and your family are well especially with everything that is going on right now with COVID-19 and now this loss. We are here if you would like to talk.
