LAWRENCE (LARRY) HAYMAN (published on August 21, 2010)

LAWRENCE (LARRY) HAYMAN We regretfully announce the passing of Larry Hayman on August 15, 2010. Larry was predeceased by his treasured wife of 49 years Joyce (nee Yuen). He will be lovingly remembered by his son Keith, his daughter Gail and her husband Dale Iwan, his grandsons Cooper and Adam Iwan, his cousin Jackie Ash (Al), his sisters Jean Ross and Betty Percival, his sister-in-law Margaret, her son David Gunn (Mary) and her companion Pearl Wylie. Larry was born in Bristol, England, April 30, 1931 where he was known as Laurie . He attended school in Exeter, Devon, was an Aircraft Apprentice at RAF Halton and worked for Westland Aircraft in Yeovil and Nott Beauchamp in Frome, Somerset, before emigrating to Canada and settling in Winnipeg in 1953 where he was dubbed Larry by his Canadian Hosts. He worked for MacDonald Brothers Aircraft and its successor Bristol Aerospace for 34 years serving as a Draftsman, Illustrator, Editor, Project Co-ordinator and Manufacturing Engineer, and was the Director of Manufacturing Engineering when he retired in 1986. He was a member of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, a founding member of Winnipeg Chapter 63 of the Experimental Aircraft Association, a pilot with 402 City of Winnipeg Squadron, a member of the St. James Legion and for the past nine years a member and volunteer of the Creative Retirement Computer Club. Larry and his family lived in Charleswood from 1963 to 1992. He designed homes, built and restored aircraft, cars and boats and was involved in his children's go-kart racing and snowmobiling. He liked swimming, sailing, cycling, hiking, walks, family picnics and the company of his many close friends. He was an avid camper and enjoyed touring with Joyce in the American southwest, the Rockies, Ontario and BC. He and Joyce cherished their family and enthusiastically supported their grandsons' sports and activities. Cremation is entrusted to Wereschuk's Funeral Chapel. At Larry's request there will be no memorial service. In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, donations may be made to the Cancer or Heart Foundation or to the Salvation Army.
