Lawrence “Larry” “LD” Daum passed away at home on Friday, October 1, 2021 at the age of 66 after a hard-fought battle with cancer, surrounded by his family. Larry was born in North Bergen, NJ. Predeceased by his father, Lawrence R. Daum, and mother, Rosemary Maher.
Larry grew up by the beach and attended Long Branch schools. He spent his childhood surfing and playing basketball and baseball. He was an avid sports fan of the NY Giants and NY Yankees. He loved tailgating and attending games with his family. He also enjoyed golf trips with great friends. After 30 plus years in the car business, Larry followed through with his dream of opening a cigar shop with his dear friend, Ben Callari. The “shop” was his pride and joy. He developed friendships that turned into family.
Surviving are his loving wife of 43 years, Irene; his beloved daughters, Kristina and Lara; his sister and best friend, Denise Manzi, and deceased brother-in-law, Frank Manzi; niece Elizabeth and husband VJ and children Alexandra, VJ, Francesca; niece Caroline and husband Matt and children Thomas, Emily, Maddie, deceased nephew Frankie and surviving daughter Annabelle. Larry is also survived by the loving members of Irene’s family – her sisters, Anne Mayo and Patty Silverstein, and brother, Claude Corso, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law and many nieces and nephews.
A memorial gathering will be held on Thursday, October 7, 2021 from 4 to 8 pm at Damiano Funeral Home followed by a Mass on Friday, October 8, 2021 at 11 am at Star of the Sea Church in Long Branch.
The outpouring of love and support has made this difficult time a bit easier knowing how many people loved Larry. Thank you!
