Lawrence A. Raskin, (76), of Bayport, New York, passed away on April 27, 2023.

Lawrence, fondly known as Larry, was born to Barnett and Estelle Raskin, on April 15, 1947, in Brooklyn, New York. He was a persistent young man, ultimately winning the heart of his loving wife, Alayne, while teenagers. Larry joined the Reserves right before they got married and was honorably discharged after six years of service. Larry graduated with a BS in Computer Science from New York Institute of Technology and went on to a very successful career at Avon Products, Book-of-the-Month Club (a division of Time Warner) and most recently Misys where he was the Regional Relationship Manager of the Americas. Larry retired in 2009 and spent the last 14 years focused on his family and friends. Larry was so genuine, made everyone smile, and always brought joy and laughter into everyone’s lives.

Larry loved nothing more than his family. Married to his best friend, Alayne, for almost 54 years, he always made sure she was taken care of. He loved her from the first minute he saw her and was so proud to have her by his side.

Larry was always there for his children, no matter what. He made sure they knew how much he loved them; never ending a conversation or visit without saying I love you, giving them a big hug and a kiss. He always offered his support, and taught them how to be demonstrative with their emotions and feelings – understanding that family is everything.

His grandson, Jace was the greatest gift of all. He beamed with pride whenever he bragged about him and smiled the most whenever he was with him.

His family will miss him tremendously. His ability to make everyone laugh, smile, and feel special was truly unique and will never be forgotten.

Larry is survived by his wife Alayne, children Kimberly, Roger, Meredith, and Lou, and his grandson Jace (who he especially adored). He is also survived by his mother-in-law, Norma, who has been part of his life for 60 years.

What a great legacy. May your memories & stories keep your father & grandfather alive in your hearts and minds, as well as with both those who knew him and those who are learning about him now.

I was so sad to hear the news of Larry. He was my boss at Avon and was a very special boss. He made coming to work fun, enjoyable and laughable. He was always smiling. I always looked forward to seeing him at the Retirement Avon luncheons. I will truly miss him, my friend.
