September 11, 1946 – Feb 27, 2015 Larry Alfred Hankins, 68, passed away suddenly in Mackenzie, British Columbia on February 27, 2015. He is already missed by all of those who knew him. He is survived by his spouse, Darlene Hankins, his children/step-children Tank, Michael (May) Winters, Wendy (Olivier) Bullion Winters, Robin and Bree Hankins, and Peggy Berthaudin; sister June (Ron) Freeman, nephew Sean Freeman, niece Kimberley Freeman, and grandchildren, Rigel and Luna Winters, Inika and Ailey Bullion Winters, and Jean and Makayla Berthaudin. He was predeceased by his mother, Aida Hankins, father, Ernie Hankins, and his daughter Dana Hankins. Larry had a gift for connecting with people from all walks of life. He always found the good in people, regardless of what they had done in the past. He tried to help those who were less fortunate. He touched hundreds of lives over the years, and those who knew him, loved him. He was an avid golfer and spent countless hours working on his golf swing. He will be remembered in our hearts forever. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Cyrus Centre would be appreciated. A celebration of life will be held at Central Community Church in Chilliwack BC at 2:00 pm on Saturday March 7, 2015. A reception will follow in the gymnasium. All are welcome. A second service will be held at the Hope Trinity Church in Mackenzie, BC at 1:00 pm on March 28, 2015.

One Condolence for “LARRY A HANKINS”

  1. Heidi Smith and Scotty Scodellaro says:

    It is such a shock to learn of Larry’s passing. I worked with Larry in the Correctional Service, and because of Larry’s sense of humour we had some good laughs together while delivering programs in the institution. He was a very kind man who enjoyed life. I valued his positive attitude and wisdom about people. My husband and I are traveling in South East Asia and cannot attend the service, but our thoughts and prayers are with Darlene and family during this sad time.
