Remembering the life and legacy of Lawrence Leighton Smith
Friends, it is with extreme sadness that we report the passing of Lawrence Leighton Smith, our beloved music director emeritus.
Larry was home and surrounded by family when he passed this morning due to complications from Binswanger’s disease. He was 77 years old, and his wife Leslie would like everyone to know that we was happy, comfortable, and in the best possible circumstances.
In keeping with Larry’s wishes, there will not be a formal funeral or memorial service, however, there will be a celebration of his life at an event to be held the weekend of November 16-17. Details will be announced on a special Facebook Page where you are also invited to share stories about Larry and his legacy.
In lieu of flowers, Larry’s family has requested that donations be made in his honor to the Colorado Springs Philharmonic.
“Among the best things we can give each other are good memories.”
