Laurence Lee Fay, 61, passed onto God March 10, 2005. Larry was raised in Atlantic City, NJ. Growing up, he enjoyed the good old days of the '50's, walking to the famous Steel Pier, seeing the "Diving Horse" and Dick Clark's Bandstand during the summers, playing on the beach, walking under the boardwalk collecting coins fallen from peoples pockets walking above, playing around "Lucy" the elephant in Margate, and enjoying weekend trips to New York and Philly with his family. After attending St. Francis College in Loretto, PA, Larry entered the Navy. He was in the Submarine service in Groton, CT. After he got out of the service, Larry truly brought his love of life to his career as a teacher, animating his students to always seek higher goals. Larry moved to the Clearwater area 20 years ago, while his parents and brother Greg had already moved to Jacksonville in 1964. His health started to decline after a stroke, which left him disabled 5 years ago. His family brought him home to Jacksonville this past August after he was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. These last months were greatly blessed with the care and dignity he received through Community Hospice of N.E. FL and the loving staff at Regents Park/Deerwood Place. Larry is survived by his parents, Danny, Sr. and Laura Fay; brother and sister-in-law Dan and Rose, of Kake, Alaska; brother, Fr. Gregory J. Fay, Holy Family Catholic Church, Jacksonville; nephew, Paul, his wife Heather and five children of Colorado Springs. Following Larry's wishes, the family will have a private funeral Mass of Christian Burial at Holy Family Catholic Church. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Community Hospice of N.E. FL 4266 Sunbeam Road, Jacksonville, FL 32257. Larry's family wants to specially thank HARDAGE-GIDDENS MANDARIN FUNERAL HOME for their expert care and concern in managing the arrangements.
