In Memoriam - Larry Morse

We’re sad to announce this news from Sheila Susini, that her husband, Larry Morse, passed away recently.

Larry began writing crime novels in the 1970s & 1980s. One of the founding members of Crime Writers of Canada, Larry was also recipient of numerous awards, including the 1981 Best Paperback Original Edgar Award for his first novel, The Old Dick, that featured an 80-year-old working detective. He also wrote a classic cozy mystery, using the pseudonym Runa Fairleigh, and later, a period thriller.

Sheila will be holding a Celebration of Life in Larry’s memory on May 11 and invites writers who might have known or worked with Larry to attend and/or share memories. She may be contacted at sheilasusini@gmail.com should they have any memories they would like to forward and/or for further details of the Celebration of Life.

His obituary can be seen at https://turnerporter.permavita.com/site/LarryMorse.html?s=40
