Larry Tate was a member of the St. Christopher Community for over 50 years.  He was an active member of Holy Name Society and served as president in 1978.  He was a very familiar part of the Festival.  Known for his warm hospitality, Larry was in charge of the Beer Booth for 32 years.  He passed away in 2016 at the age of 80 and is missed by all who knew him.  In 2017, HNS renamed the Festival Beer Garden in his memory.  We miss you Larry and thank you!
