DENNEHY Jr., Lawrence – Of Wakefield, left us August 14th. Originally
from Somerville, Larry also spent several years in Kingman, Arizona
before settling in Wakefield, MA. Mr. Dennehy most recently worked for
G & G Mechanical of Malden and also enjoyed many years as a pilot car
driver with his son-in-law exploring the Western United States. Prior
to that Larry worked at the Dockside Restaurants in Malden & Nahant
and additionally for the Harvard University Printing Press. Larry's
passion for New England Sports is only topped but that of his love for
family and dear friends. For those that knew him, he enjoyed life to
the fullest, celebrating summertime with family BBQs in Burlington and
beach vacations to Maine. Larry was everyone's favorite handyman and
also excelled in his ability to meticulously paint the interior and
exterior of houses. You would find him with a smile and paintbrush in
his hand on a regular basis.
