Lawrence Allen, age 74, passed away on June 9th, 2018, at home, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Larry is survived by his loving children, Elizabeth, Tom, Laura, and David, his brother Douglas, his sister Eileen, Douglas’ wife Ilze, Eileen's daughters Dana and Michele, Elizabeth’s husband Scot, and his beloved grandchildren, Gavin and Ryan. Larry is predeceased by his beloved son Michael. Upon graduating from the University of Pennsylvania and then Case Western Reserve Law School, Larry came to Miami where he practiced law for nearly 50 years. He was a man of integrity and strength. He had an invariably positive attitude and loved a challenge. Larry was perceptive, discerning, and resourceful, with a keen intellect, razor sharp memory, and quick wit. He was extremely athletic – a track star in high school and college and an avid weight lifter and tennis player throughout his life. He was immensely creative and was able to render a figure or paint a landscape with skillful dexterity. Spending time with his children and grandchildren brought Larry great joy. He will be deeply and profoundly missed. Charitable donations may be made in Larry's memory to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
