The FHR community mourns the loss of Larry Ferguson, who unexpectedly passed away on Friday, May 21.
Larry devoted his career to helping individuals, couples, and families improve their quality of life. He served as FHR’s Acting Regional Director in Virginia, overseeing the management of supported housing and crisis stabilization programming. Previously, he held the role of Clinical Supervisor. In these positions, he led FHR’s programs for seven years.
He was admired and well respected by his colleagues at FHR. His experience and passion for assisting individuals on their journeys of recovery were evident to all who worked with him. Many described him as both a mentor and a father figure – someone who was always teaching lessons, sharing knowledge, and inspiring those around him to reach their full potential.
“Larry to me was a mentor, a teacher, and a role model,” shared one colleague. “He was very knowledgeable, supportive, and smart. He will be missed and I will never forget the positive impact he has made in my life. I will always remember all of the advice he gave me, and that will stay with me.”
We will fondly remember Larry’s dedication to FHR and its mission, as well as his leadership and commitment to those he worked with.
During this difficult time, our thoughts are with Larry’s family and friends.
