AUGUST 24, 1958 – OCTOBER 21, 2021


It is with extreme sadness that family announce the passing of their beloved husband, father and grandfather, Lawrence (Larry) George Voeller. Larry passed away at the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital on Thursday, October 21, 2021, at the age of 63 years. He will be deeply missed by his wife, Cindy; daughter, Aimee (Troy); sons, Michael (Kaylee) and Brett (Kennedy); grandson, Nash; brother, Ray (Anna); brother-in-laws and sisters-in-law, Randy and Sherry Cameron and Doug and Wanda Smail as well as many nieces, nephews and close friend, Richard Sauer. Larry was predeceased by his parents, Simon and Mary Voeller; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Murray and Jeanette Smail; nephew, Cody Smail and niece, Anna Smail. Larry was born in Calgary, AB., on August 24, 1958 and raised on the family farm in Maleb, Alberta. He attended Conquerville School, Senator Gershaw School and Medicine Hat High School. Larry had a great childhood growing up on the family farm where he filled an active role helping out whether it was feeding the animals or driving truck. Larry also enjoyed playing sports growing up, dirtbiking with his good friend Neil Dragland and having many adventures with his brother and cousins. After school, Larry went to work on the rigs for many years, and it was during this time that he met the love of his life in Medicine Hat, Cindy. They were married on July 2, 1983 and purchased a home in Medicine Hat. After the arrival of their first born, Aimee, Larry made the decision to quit the rigs and to farm full time to be closer to his family. A couple of years later, after the arrival of Michael and with Brett on the way, they made the move to the family farm in Maleb. While living on the farm, Larry enjoyed the produce from Cindy’s garden and he was always eager to try her latest baking creations. He loved watching his kids grow up on the farm and play their many sports. Jokingly and lovingly known by his family as “Coach Larry”, even after his kids graduated, Larry always made it out to watch all of their recreational sports. Ten years later, Larry and family made the move to Bow Island where Larry started a successful roofing company called Voeller’s roofing. He also worked for Polycore, Nutrien Ag and drove combine. He absolutely loved camping, fishing, spending time with friends and going on many trips with his brother and sister-in-law, Randy and Sherry. Larry’s family was his greatest passion and he was there for them in every way. Whether it was fixing vehicles, watching their animals, reminding them when their registration was due, changing their furnace filters or his constant 30 minute countdown before leaving to go anywhere. Larry treasured becoming a grandfather to his first grandchild, Nash. He was so proud to be the first one to meet him in the hospital. Nash is a spitting image of him and everyone refers to him as “Little Larry”. Having touched the lives of so many, Larry will be deeply missed.
