In Memoriam – Larry Burian
Posted on February 1, 2021 7:00 AM by Mary Cheston, Board of Directors
New Town resident and former Board of Directors member Larry Burian passed away in late December. Although he had only lived in Village Walk since 2017, Larry stepped up to run for the Board and was elected in June 2020. In his own words: “I don’t want to just stand by and “let the other person” carry the burden of volunteer work. Now that the NTRA will be out from under the builder’s thumb, I see this as an opportunity to serve on the Board alongside fellow residents who share the like-minded goal of making our community a place that we can all truly call home.”
When he resigned from the Board in September for health reasons, Larry sent me this saying which he had used with many small group seminar participants:
Communications Problem: “I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.”
Larry was unfailingly positive about the work of the NTRA Communications Committee while serving as our Board liaison.
Larry had an illustrious professional career and was warmly remembered by those who knew him.
Our condolences to his family at their loss.
