I worked for General Lashkevich on 3 separate postings. He was a very caring man who always strove to do his best for his people and for the CAF. He will be truly missed. Our deepest sympathies to Karen and the Lashkevich family. Deirdre and Jerry Peet
Larry Lashkevich will be missed by so many. Larry served on the Board of Directors of the Rankin Terrace Non-Profit Housing Corporation in Kanata, including several years as President. Larry was still serving on the Board when he passed away. He believed strongly that safe, affordable, well-maintained housing is an important base for building a productive life. Larry's thoughtful contributions to Rankin Terrace will be missed.
Our deepest condolences to Larry’s family. He was a man of impeccable character – exceptionally principled - a rock solid moral compass. Honest, honourable, sincere and genuine, he was one of the truly good ones. A really great guy who will be sorely missed.
I had met Larry a few times, but it wasn't until Matt and Kim's wedding in Mexico that I got to know him. We had many conversations during this week (many faith based), we walked the Mayan Ruins and went repelling and zip lining together. Larry will always be a part of those special week of memories.
Sincere condolences to Larrys Family and close fruends and admirers.
I knew Larry since 1976 when we both attended Staff school as young Army Quartermasters. He was and remained a tiresome, diligent and ardent worker who aspired to lead more than most. He found his calling with the Airforce where he excelled at every task. Larry will not rest in heaven. He will forever pursue righteousness and good deeds in the absence of politicking and where he will continue to provide "service second to none".
God bless you brother Logistician and enjoy your eternal reward and the peace you have justly earned. And thank you for your leadership and your inspiration to me to change only what we can and the wisdom to know the difference.
I extend my deepest condolences to the Lashkevich family. Larry was a longtime friend and colleague who could always be depended upon to provide wise counsel and learned advice, and was a true professional and leader throughout his time in the military and in industry. His calm, humble and respectful demeanor will be sorely missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing Larry. My thoughts and prayers are with the Lashkevich family during this difficult time of grieving. Ray Henault
I have first met him when I was a young officer in Hungary. With his unique personality, humor and professionalism he mentored me and helped me to set foot on a path which was unimaginable at that time. Without him I would not be the same man who I am today. He will be always remembered.
My heart goes out to Karen and family, and now I feel utterly gutted at Larry's passing. He was a great friend over literally the last 50 years. We were classmates from RMC which led us to celebrate a lot of life together. I was an usher at his wedding to Karen and he was best man at mine. Although we didn't see each other a lot over the last few years as geography had us apart, it was great spending time with him at our RMC reunion last fall. Rest in peace, my old friend.
