Charest, Larry

Larry Charest was born on January 28, 1920, and he was baptized in the Beaumont Church in Alberta. He moved with his family to Falher in 1928, and in 1931 they settled on a homestead in Guy. A school was built on the homestead, so Larry had a shorter distance to walk. Formerly he walked a 14 mile round trip to school when he was only 7 years old. During WW II he spent 4 ½ years in the army as a cook. After the war he obtained land from VLA (SE 15-75-20-W5 and SW 14-75-20 W5), and he farmed on his own. On April 14, 1974 he married a widow, Germaine (Thibault) Paradis, at McLennan AB. Larry then sold the farm and bought a house in Kelowna BC.
