Lawrence “Larry” S. Glynn died from lung complications at the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center in Galloway, New Jersey on Monday, March 14, 2016, at the age of 62. Lawrence was born to Catharine M. and Lawrence J. Glynn in the Bronx, New York on May 9, 1953. He grew up in College Point, New York. He attended grammar school at St. Fidelis and graduated from Bishop Reilly High School. Larry enlisted in the Navy in 1975 and served four years aboard the USS Coral Sea Aircraft Carrier. He then studied at St. Johns University where he received his Masters degree in English and began a teaching career first at Queens Vocational High School and later at Thomas Edison High School, where he retired from teaching after 26 years. Larry valued education deeply; he was an avid reader all his life, and loved teaching not only his students but also nearly everyone he came in contact with. He enjoyed fishing and baseball and was a devoted New York Yankees fan. Predeceased by Lawrence is his beloved second daughter, Courtney, in 1991, the mother of his three daughters, Diane Glynn, in 2005, and his father, Lawrence J. Glynn, in 1996. He is survived by his mother, Catharine Glynn of College Point, NY, his beautiful daughters, Kerry and Macaulay Glynn, brothers Patrick and Brian Glynn, his sister, Mary Ellen Glynn-Gonzalez, his nephews Christopher, Keith and Gabriel, and niece, Kelsey. Larry will be deeply missed by numerous first and second cousins, many of which came to visit him at the hospital during his final days. He will be laid to rest at Calverton National Cemetery with his beloved second daughter, Courtney. A beautiful, brilliant mind and heart left us on March 14th and has left behind many who love him and will remember and celebrate his life and the immensity of knowledge he shared with joy always.
