Obituary

Lawrence Frank Daley of Montgomery, NY, passed away Friday, April 15, 2022, in the Bronx NY VA Hospital. He was 86.

The son of Lawrence Frank Daley Sr. and Grace Daley-Boyer, he was born September 29, 1935 in Brooklyn, NY.  He was predeceased by his younger brother, Jerry Daley, who was killed in action in Vietnam.

Lawrence served in the United States Army and was a Korean War era veteran.  He was a member of the VFW and Holy Name of Mary Knights of Columbus as well as St Mary’s Men’s Club.  He was also the past Grand Marshall of Montgomery’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade. He was past President of the Co-op City Astronomy Club and past Treasurer of the Co-op City Photography Club.

Survivors include his wife Anne Daley, brother David Daley, daughter Kathleen Haynes & husband Jim, daughter Maureen Daley, daughter Karen Curran & husband Michael; grandchildren Renee Gostmann and husband Brendan, Ryan Curran, Grace Anne Curran, Keith Curran, Patrick Haynes, Maryanne Haynes, Connor Haynes; great grandchildren Amelia Gostmann and James Gostmann.

Sadly, the world lost the most kind and gentle man. Larry Daley passed away on Good Friday. He was his smart and joyful self until the very end. His mind and heart were willing to live to 100 but it didn’t work out as planned.

He always looked on the bright side of life and never let the physical challenges imposed by living with multiple sclerosis ever deter him from living life to the fullest. He was always ready for the next fun adventure that life had to offer. He travelled extensively with the Paralyzed Veterans Wheelchair Games and earned many a gold and bronze medal along the way.

We will miss him dearly and it saddens us to know this world doesn’t have Larry Daley’s bright, optimistic and kind soul to light our way.
