Larry H. Shore age 72, passed away Friday, November 11, 2022, at Peace Hospice in Great Falls, Montana, after a courageous battle with cancer. He was born May 16, 1950, to Maxine and Bill Shore in Great Falls, MT. Larry spent most of his early years in Havre, MT, where he graduated from high school. After high school, Larry was drafted into the U.S. Army to serve in Vietnam. He received several medals for honorable service. Larry married Debbie Kuhr in 1971 and they had a son, Ryan. Larry began his life journey in the family business as part of Shore's Floral. He had a gift for design at both the Havre and Chinook locations, but his real passion was to become a rock and roll drummer. While pursuing his dream of music, Larry met his wife of 35 years, Diane Boroski, and became part of a new family with four young children; Leann, Mari, Joe, and Tony. Larry and Diane later moved to Minnesota where he retired from the Elk River School District as head custodian. Larry and Diane ultimately retired to Circle, Montana, to live closer to the extended Shore family.
Larry was preceded in death by his wife Diane; parents Bill and Maxine; brother Robert; sister Wilma "Corky" Curtiss and brother-in-law LuVerne "Doc" Curtiss; and brother-in-law Les Dolezal. He is survived by his sister Charlotte Dolezal of Surprise, AZ; his daughter, Leann Shore of Richfield, MN; his daughter Mari of Choteau, MT, and her sons Quaid and Bailey; his son Joe Boroski of Dutton, MT, and his children Paige, Dominique, Tristan and Haleigh; his son Ryan Smith and wife Krista of Great Falls, MT, and their sons Kevin and Kody; and Tony and his wife Lisa Shore of Monticello, MN and his children Trenton (Theresa & baby Amelia), Breanna (Andres), & Lyle. Larry has numerous beloved nieces and nephews.
