Glen Larry Douglas

Date of Birth

November 25, 1953

Date of Death

October 20, 2016

On a bright and beautiful sunny Thursday afternoon, Larry canoed off to the great mountain in the sky. Surrounded by family and friends playing music, dancing and sweet Rima singing him to sleep.

He was born in Santa Barbara on Nov. 25, 1953 to Eugene A. Douglas and Priscilla Elston Douglas. He is survived by his neice Elenah Elston of Laytonville, CA the Douglas-Taylor family, the O’Connell family of Santa Barbara, the Ahola family and hundreds of friends all over the planet.

Larry always followed his own path and moved to Laytonville, CA 38 years ago where he created a magical life high in the hills. He spent his days farming, carving wood and stones and hanging out with his favorite friends, the deer, the bears and the lizards. In Laytonville he acquired countless friends that he considered “family.”

On Oct. 20 we lost a very special man, a friend, a cousin, a nephew, an uncle, a “dad,” a brother and one of the greatest mentors to us all. He will be missed each and every day. Remember Larry laughing, smiling and telling silly jokes. He wold want us to always be kind to one another and love and help eachother at all times just as he did. Thank you Larry for showing us the way!

Do you know why farmers always dress up as pirates for Halloween? So they can keep an eye on their patch! Original joke by Larry Douglas told to “Windy Cuz” on a late night phone call.

If you would like to keep Larry’s memory alive please donate to Serenity House of Santa Barbara, or your favorite animal charity.
