Lawrence Schofield

August 19, 1960 — March 20, 2022

Lawrence (Larry) D. Schofield passed away on March 20, 2022, at St. Michael’s Medical Center after a long 19-month battle with cancer.

Larry was born in Klamath Falls, Oregon on August 19, 1960, to Tom and Lorna Schofield. He grew up with his two sisters, Lavinda and Leslie. He lived in Oregon until his family moved to
the Seattle area when he was five. Growing up, Larry was normally shy around others but loved to perform on the stage, where he could transform into someone else, whether he was performing at Mountlake Terrace High School or The Seattle Children’s Theater. 

In his early years of adult life, Larry had many jobs. Among them were that of a bank courier and telephone salesperson for Eddie Bauer. He finally settled on a career choice and went to work at IMF Bangor. He started in the Security Department. He was there as a Security Specialist for 33 years.

Larry was born with an innate ability to navigate his world. Before GPS became a travel necessity, his family could always rely on Larry’s internal compass to lead the way. And maybe this was why he felt so comfortable traveling to foreign countries with no fear. He became an avid world traveler. He would sometimes make two trips a year to some distant destination that was calling his name at that point in time. He made trips to Thailand, Malaysia, Italy, Holland, Hong Kong, Macau, Germany. He visited such cities as Paris, London, Berlin, Amsterdam, Rome, Vatican City, Venice, Bangkok, Phuket. He amassed a significant collection of blue-white porcelain pieces from all of his travels. Blue and white porcelain seemed to be his biggest passion.

When Larry wasn’t at work or off seeing the world, he stayed active with his other love. He was a hiker, kayaker, and camper. He hiked to many places here in the Olympic Mountains. He went to such places as the Olympic Hot Springs, Boulder Lake, Apple Pass, the top of Mt Walker, and the 6210-foot summit of Mt Townsend. He kayaked Liberty Bay to Agate Pass, through Rich Passage to Blake Island. He spent several weekends camping in the Olympics. He also spent similar time periods camping and kayaking at Lake Crescent, Lake Ozette, and, Lake Omak.
After his cancer diagnosis, Larry still tried to stay active. He took a few trips to Seattle to get away for a weekend or he would take a day trip to one of his favorite destinations like Port Townsend.

Larry will be sorely missed by his family, his friends, and his coworkers.

Arrangements are entrusted to Cook Family Funeral Home of Bainbridge Island, WA
