Vale Larry Howard…. Mini Kingdom

Hi Everybody,

It is with sadness that I send this to let you know of the passing of Larry Howard.

Larry had suffered for many years from Kidney disease and had many years travelling to hospital for treatment, yet still managed to keep his sense of humour and did not complain.

Funeral details for Larry:-

Leura Memorial Gardens and Crematorium

Kitchener road,

Leura NSW 2780

Tuesday 10:00AM.

For those wishing to attend, a Convoy is being organised to leave McDonalds, on the M4 at Eastern Creek at 8:30am.

The convoy will travel up the Great Western Highway with lights on to Leura, and all Mini’s are welcome to join in along the way.

I will share with you these few words written by John Smidt about Larry,

It is with great sadness that I inform the Mini fraternity of the passing of Larry Howard.

I am sure that there are a lot of people in the Mini circles who had the pleasure of knowing Larry.

For those who did not know him I would like to tell you a little about the man, and Larry is a Man in the true sense of the word.

His interest in the Mini Dates back decades. Larry once owned a successful Mini business in Penrith, however, as a result of a bad car accident Larry had to close the business down. Bad luck would plague Larry for the rest of his life.

I never ever heard him complain. Whenever he and I discussed any of the many obstacles Larry had to confront he would simply say, “ah well, that’s life Smidty”, and he would just get on with it.

Larry’s knowledge of the Mini and his ability to remember part numbers and any relevant supercession is legendary. Many years back when the Mini Kingdom catalogue was being written Larry was always available with help and advice.

Larry and I worked together for over thirty years and I considered him to be an honest, reliable, loyal friend. He was a great help to Mini owners for many a year, both on the front line and behind the scenes.

Larry has not enjoyed good health for many years and in the latter part of his life it got particularly difficult for him, but still not the slightest complaint. During this period he would come over and help me as much and as often as he could, and would even apologise for not coming in if he was not feeling well enough.

I will miss you my friend. If there is a better place after death you have more than earned the right to be there.

Smidty
