Lawrence Anthony Flori passed away August 23, 2015, after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Larry was born in Pueblo June 7, 1936, to Rose and Caesar Flori. He is a graduate of Central High School and Pueblo Junior College. His first passion found him majoring in music but later found his true calling when he started working for Curtis Circulation Company. He remained active in the periodical distribution and publishing business until shortly before his death.
His zest for life was a joy to his many friends and family. Everyone he touched was made to feel loved and special. He and Rose Marie hosted many holidays and birthdays at their home. The grandkids would never miss a chance to go to Grandpa's.
Larry is survived by his wife, Rose Marie (married 60 years); sons, Michael (Robyn), Steven (Becky), Gary (Rene); sisters, Rose Ann Nichols and Janet Van Dam; grandchildren, Erin Flori, Angela (Nick) Herrera, Alexandra (Sean) Flori, Justin Flori, Antonio Flori, Sierra Flori; and great-granddaughter, Elaina Herrera; sisters-in-law, Arlene (Louis), Carol Blatnik, Jeri McGinnis (Billy), and Mary Ann (Harold) Davis; numerous nieces and nephews; extended family and many friends.

We Love You, will miss you, and Love you always.
