Passing of a Geocacher

Last night we lost one of our local geocaching community members, Larry Canfield. He had terminal cancer; we only found out he was ill very recently.

Cardinal Flyer Larry was very well known in the Geocaching world by the name Cardinal Flyer. Larry, his wife and granddaughter (as Team Nimrod) hid "Caitlyns Caches" throughout the Inland Empire. Larry was a prolific geocacher and has 234 hides in the area. If you have ever cached in the Spokane/Coeur d'Alene area you've probably found at least one of his Caitlyn Caches, named after his beloved granddaughter, Caitlyn.

Team Nimrod and Martin 5Pictured here is one of Jerry Martin’s (IE Chapter WSGA Representative), memories of caching with Larry. There will be an event in the next couple of months to honor/remember Larry.

In the meantime, we have contributed to the Go Fund Me campaign to help with costs and expenses. We encourage our caching community to pause for a moment, and to consider donating as well. Let’s help this family in their time of need.
