Obituary Overview

Larry Haviland Amos


Amos, Larry Haviland, age 62, of Dartmouth, passed away on Tuesday, August 3, 2021 at the QEII Hospital, VG Site, Halifax.

Larry was born in Doaktown, NB. He was the son of “Earl” Haviland Amos and Shirley Helen (Storey) Amos. He was the middle child of five. Growing up, he was an avid baseball and hockey player.

At heart, Larry was an entrepreneur. His work ethic, tenacity and integrity have led to the success of his company and passion, East Coast Irrigation & Landscape Lighting. He was well-liked and respected by his customers, service partners, suppliers and those that worked with him.

He was a kind and generous person always willing to offer a helping hand and advice, both personally and professionally regardless of what else he had to do.

He was exceptionally proud of his “girls” and the women they have become as well as their many achievements.

His hobbies and interests centered around family. Camping trips were an opportunity for him to relax, enjoy his grandchildren, and compete “semi-professionally” in the family wash-toss league.

For those fortunate to know him, they knew that sly smile and exceptional sense of humor. You never knew what he was going to say, but you always knew you were going to laugh.

Larry is survived by his wife Debra Garland, daughters Lindsay Amos and Miranda Amos, sisters Wanda (Brian Peterson), Shelly (Pat Kilbride), brothers Ricky (Lori) and Kenny. His blended family included Krista Langille-Crowe, (Randy) and Martin Langille (Katie). Larry’s five grandchildren were a source of pride and delight: Spencer, Lily, Gracie, Violet, and Layla. Not to be forgotten are his fur-babies Misha and Bruin, predeceased by Lucy and Orrie.

Celebration of his life will be held at the Atlantic Funeral Home on Friday August 13th, from 2-4pm by invitation only, Rev. James Haughn officiating. In accordance with Larry’s wishes, there will be no visitation

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or The Canadian Wildlife Federation. Special thanks to Alyson, Jason, and Joey, nurses at the VG hospital who provided compassionate care during a very difficult time. Also, thanks to family members without whom this journey would have been insurmountable.

I am so sorry for your loss. I knew Larry only through email and phone for several years. He was a straight shooter, and well respected. My sincere condolences to the family.
