It is with deep regret that Chief of Department, Jonathan Yahr along with the Lakewood,NJ Fire Department announce the passing of Lawrence “Larry” Patterson, former volunteer member of Hook and Ladder Co #1.
Larry was a police officer for 29 years with the Lakewood Police Department, retiring as a Sergeant in 2010.
Larry is survived by his beloved wife of 46 years, Karen Patterson; his children, Robert Patterson and his wife Erin; and Katie Patterson.
Larry was a kind and caring person who will be missed by all who knew him.
Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
