People across the Saginaw community remember Larry Coulouris as a man who loved his adopted community. The 91-year-old Canadian native, who lived in Saginaw for six decades, died Tuesday at Covenant Medical Center after a brief illness.
He was a fixture in downtown Saginaw, operating Larry’s Lounge for 45 years, until 2002.
In 2005, he ran for a seat on the Saginaw City Council, serving until he resigned last month, due to health issues. Over the years, Coulouris was active with the city’s downtown development authority, Downtown Saginaw Association and the city’s planning commission.
An avid hockey player, he played in three Senior Olympic games, skating until he was 88 years old and was an off ice official for the Ontario Hockey League, monitoring the visitor’s penalty box.
A gathering will be held from 2:00 until 8:00 p.m ., September 6th, at the Snow Funeral Home, 3775 North Center Road, in Saginaw Township.
Memorials are available at the funeral home for the Larry Coulouris Scholarship Fund, through the Saginaw Community Foundation.
