WE REMEMBER AND CELEBRATE LARRY SIMMONS

Larry Simmons (LJS) passed away in January 2022 at home surrounded by loved ones. Larry’s daughter Karen Simmons created the LJS Memorial Legacy Fund in memory of her father. The purpose of the fund is to make charitable contributions to causes LJS cared deeply about, such as: wilderness conservation; outdoor recreation; hunting and fishing; agriculture and farming; trade schools, especially cars and construction; swimming, life guarding, and water rescue; and Alzheimer’s, Lewy body dementia, and Parkinson’s research and care.
