    It is with a sense of loss that I acknowledge the passing of Larry, as the last of two generations of McArthurs whom I observed and learned-from as a youth in the rural community of Oro Station.

    His mother and dad were highly respected in Oro Township, and I was a good friend of his older brother, Doug – we attended elementary school together and we ‘hung-out as friends’ during our teen years.

    It is a humble honour to acknowledge and celebrate two generations of McArthurs in the Community of Oro Station: they were an interesting, dynamic and productive family.
