It is with great sadness that the family of Lawrence John Kennedy, “Larry”, announces his passing. Larry, 88, of Willis Texas, formerly of Queens New York, passed away on Monday February 11, 2019. Larry was a strong, devoted, determined; Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather, and Veteran who is loved and missed by many. He will be beloved and remembered always. Larry was born December 17, 1930 in Queens, New York, the only child to John Lawrence and Mary A. Kennedy. He grew up in Queens, New York. After high school he worked as a Hardware Clerk until he entered into, Active Service in the United States Armed Forces in 1951.

Larry married his wife Helen in 1955. Together they had three children, Catherine, John, and Susan. Larry loved his family dearly, he always thrived when they were around. He especially loved watching the little ones run and play. Over the years, this was his children, then grandchildren, and more recently, his great grandchildren. Throughout the years, Larry had many occupations and trades, including being a Carpenter where he contributed to some of the original construction of New York City. Over his 88 years, he found an interest in collecting movies. Most of these being old war movies, westerns, and anything history related.
