Lawrence was a devoted husband and father. He was an avid sports fan with a true love for the New York Yankees and the New York football Giants.

I am sorry for your loss. Larry was a friendly and funny man who I had the pleasure of knowing. I enjoyed many times with Larry and Nancy at functions with the Montebello Seniors. My prayers go out to you.
