Angers II LAURENT "LARRY" ARTHUR Angers II, loving son, brother, uncle, nephew, and cousin, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, July 24, at his home in Ashfield at the age of 58. Born in Springfield, MA on Jan. 6, 1955, dear son of Nancy J. (Johnson) Angers and the late Pierre A. Angers, II, he resided in Ashfield for the past 20 years. Larry graduated from East Longmeadow High School and attended Lyndon State College, which is located in the North East Kingdom of Vermont. He was the head chef at the Lake House Restaurant in Ashfield for almost 20 years. Larry was a wonderful chef who loved to cook and truly enjoyed living on the pond in Ash- field, and in his younger years, he would have spent much of his time fishing there. He loved the Red Sox and was also an avid fan of the Celtics, watching them on TV with friends whenever he could. One of the activities he most loved was skiing. It was a favorite fam- ily sport throughout the years and he became a beautiful skier. Besides his mother, Nancy, of East Longmeadow, he is survived by his loving sisters, Deborah Ellison and her husband, Kurt, of Concord, NH, and Julie Stenning of Tiverton, RI; his aunt, Susan Kilbum, of East Longmeadow; 2 nieces, Katherine Craigen and Emily Stenning; 2 nephews, Andrew Ellison and Christopher Stenning; and 3 cousins, Beth Kipetz, Jonathan Kilburn and Nancy Celetano Funeral services for Larry were held on Sunday, July 28, at Hafey Springfield Chapels, followed by a service in the funeral home celebrating Larry's life. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations in Larry's name may be made to the Double Edge The- atre, 948 Conway Rd., Ashfield, MA 01330.
