"We lost a great man and river legend Larry Heater this past Saturday evening. Larry and his wife Lucille are part of the original Members of the Deshka Landing. Larry has been a integral part of the Deshka Landing community since the early days and he selflessly volunteered to help build what we are today. Many of you first met him when he showed up at 2am in the rain and pitch black to provide a rescue back to the landing. Please come and help the family celebrate his life and service to our Alaska Community. The family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made directly to the Wounded Warriors in Larry’s name. Please keep Lucille and the family in your thoughts and prayers. Joe Wright"

"Please do stop by to have a cup of coffee and share your stories of Larry and the river! We would love to see your pictures and hear your tall tales of adventures. There will be food too - so please come hungry. In lieu of flowers we do ask for you to make a donation in Larry's name to Wounded Warriors..."
