Anthony Larkin passed away.
I remember him before the facebook era, when there were just google groups. Very helpfull and passionate reflexologist. A big influence worldwide.
He was proud of having the biggest collection of reflexology books.
In the early hours of Wednesday 18 July 2018, the 199th day of the year, I lost my dad Anthony Larkin where he was in the intensive care unit in University Hospital Waterford. The above is a poem I read to him to send him comfortably on his way.
He carved his own niche in the world being one of the key players and trailblazers in reflexology and reiki in Ireland and cited in many reflexology books internationally, helping so many people with their health, and teaching so many more across the country. He was also a well regarded Chiropodist and chiropody was a love of his going back many years. He was technology mad and loved keeping in the know with the latest Nikon cameras and Apple gear.
He has been the best, thoughtful and understanding dad anyone could ask for. Daddy was a character, full of wit and ways with words. He was brazen and would say anything to anyone. His stories often seemed exaggerated but we're learning that the more the exaggerated they sounded the more true they actually were. Everyone has an Anthony story and if you have any to share we would love to hear them. Comment below (please note it's public) or message me privately.
He was renowned for his choices in food and a visionary when it came to trying to communicate what he wanted to restaurant staff. This included his mantra when requesting no garnish
"I want steak and chips, no slurry or silage, not even flowers on the plate."
RIP Anthony Larkin 'the foot man' 1945-2018. Far too young to go so quickly.
