“[…] Larry Joseph demonstrated some of the most important skills in the game. Smooth as ever, effortlessly—as he alone did it—and effectively, as we loved seeing him on football field. He surely will be missed…”
The following statement on the passing of former Strike Squad midfielder Larry Joseph was submitted to Wired868 by Trinidad and Tobago Super League (TTSL) president and former Strike Squad captain Clayton ‘JB’ Morris:
It’s with great sadness and pain I express condolences, on behalf of the Trinidad and Tobago Super League, to the family of Larry Joseph on his passing.
Having the opportunity to team up with Larry over the years—playing for Trintoc, United Petrotrin, Charlotte Eagles, Petrotrin All-stars Masters, La Brea All-Stars Masters, the 1989 Strike Squad pool and, most recently, in Strike Squad exhibition games and its community outreach initiative—qualifies me to express such.
A true patriot and lover of his family, community and God, Larry always had the extra in him when the moment warranted it. His last interaction with football, in December 2020, was recorded on video as he demonstrated some of the most important skills in the game.
Smooth as ever, effortlessly—as he alone did it—and effectively, as we loved seeing him on football field. He surely will be missed.
Trinidad and Tobago Super League (TTSL) members join with the rest of the football fraternity to express condolences, love, prayers and support to Larry Joseph’s family. May God grant you all the strength through these difficult times.
