Obituary – Lawrence “Larry” Charles Keating

March 4, 1969 – September 11, 2021

Picture of Lawrence "Larry" Charles Keating in a dark winter jacket and sunglasses.

I met Larry halfway through high school. We had both recently moved to Rhode Island from the deep south, he from Florida and I from Alabama. Some thought we were related due to our shared name. (I was just developing an interest in genealogy but he had no real interest in it at the time, so we (well, I) never determined whether our Keating lines were related.) I lost track of him after high school but would occasionally search online for him to see how he was faring. Unfortunately, during my last search, I found his obituary.

If you are related to Larry, my condolences. He was a good guy and will be missed.
