Lawrence Lynch Jr., 61, of Shrewsbury passed away Wednesday, May 31st.
A husband, father, son, brother and friend to many, Larry loved to laugh and had a quick wit. His wealth of knowledge on almost any topic was enlightening and entertaining. Larry had an engaging personality and a story for every occasion.
His passion for the printed word was evident in his 30 plus year career as a Madison Avenue newspaper ad executive and the stacks of books all around the house.
He was as equally passionate about seafood, especially his love of crabs. His perfect weekend included family and friends sitting around the kitchen table cracking crabs, beers and jokes.
Larry was a man of character, humor, loyalty, compassion and love. He will be so deeply missed by all his friends and family.
Lawrence is predeceased by his Brother Kevin.
He is survived by his beloved wife Kathleen (nee: Bischoff), his loving children Adam, William and Claire, his parents Lawrence J. and Betty Lynch, his brother Brian and his wife Donna, and a large extended family including many nieces, nephews and cousins.
