Goodbye Larry Summers!

We all lost a dear friend with the recent passing of Larry Summers. We gathered at Jeff’s Pirates Cove this past September 15th, 2013, to celebrate Larry’s life. Larry was given a wonderful sendoff onto his next journey as his ashes were spread in the waters off the beach at beautiful Jeff’s Pirates Cove.

Larry, a Colorado native, married his wife Zelma, December 25, 1959. They traveled the world so to speak as Peace Corps volunteers before eventually ending up on Guam.

In attendance at Larry’s memorial celebration along with his wife Zelma, were many of his friends and contemporaries. Opening remarks were given by dear friend Frank Whitman. The opening prayer was led by Gedell Carnegie. Many people spoke of their good times with Larry. Josephine Mendiola, Ysu Mendiola, John Eads, Debbie Whitman were just a few. There were others.

Closing song was preformed by R.A. Meyers and the closing prayer was given by Gedell Carnegie. There was a wonderful slide show compiled by Wes Gima. Even the Pirate himself was on hand to give a few closing remarks and invite everyone down to the beach for our final goodbye celebration for Larry.

Larry’s earthly remains were joined with the everlasting waters of the Pacific Ocean where they will forever be one with nature. Larry’s spirit moves on to commence his next journey. We wish him the very best.

Here are a few of the photos that were taken on this beautiful day…

Good-bye to Larry from Zelma and the rest of us at Jeff’s. Enjoy the next chapter of your life. We shall all meet up one day.

Until then…..

Ciao from The Pirate!!
