Obituary for Larry Delver (Foothills)

It is with deep sorrow that the family of Larry Delver announces his death at the age of 80 years.

Larry was born and raised in Saskatoon, completed his veterinary degree at the University of Guelph, Ontario, and began his career in mixed animal practice in Saskatchewan. He was never afraid of the challenge of something new and enjoyed an exciting career as a veterinarian, insurance adjuster, and ranch manager, both in Canada and abroad. In later years his interest in cattle breeding lead to developing a pedigree herd of his own, and advising and regulating artificial insemination, embryo transfer, and health aspects of animal import and export. Larry has been a staunch supporter of the livestock industry, always keeping the interests of producers at heart while protecting animal health and welfare. His honesty, friendly style, flexible thinking and sense of fairness will be sorely missed in the agricultural and regulatory world.

Larry is mourned by his loving wife Hilary; his son Curtis (Marney); grandchildren Justin and Cassie; and siblings Jenny (David) Christensen, Peter (Debra) Delver, Linda Delver, and Ron (Arla) Delver. He was predeceased by his father Peter and mother Mary (nee Waldner).

A wake is planned to share memories and celebrate Larry’s life, on March 30th, 2019 from 2 p.m. at the Foothills Centennial Centre, Okotoks, Alberta. Please arrive in time for eulogies and tributes starting at 3 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. Proceeds from bar sales will be donated to the Tom Baker Cancer Centre. I hope you can be there; to help me with catering plans, please reply to by March 15th, 2019. Thank you.

Larry, you have worked hard all your life but now it is time to rest.
Go in peace, and take our all love with you on your last journey.

As an alternative to flowers please donate in Larry's name to the Tom Baker Cancer Centre (
