It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lawrence (Larry) John Jadlocki, on March 27, 2024, after a period of declining health. If asked to describe Larry, those who were lucky enough to be a part of his life journey would instantly use the words kind, loving, caring, giving, and golf fanatic.

Born July 5, 1949, to Ruth and John Jadlocki, he lived with his two sisters, Barbara and Claudia, in Bucks County, Pennsylvania and spent his childhood in typical fashion. Typical that is, until he attended a fateful church youth group roller skating party at the age of 14 that forever altered the course of his life. It was there that he skated around the rink with the future love of his life, Eunice, and from that moment on, his life was changed in the most spectacular way. They wed, in 1970, while he was completing his undergraduate studies in Finance at Rider College (alma mater of his father and then his daughter.) He went on to pursue a graduate degree at New York University.

Together Larry and Eunice created a beautiful and loving life in New Jersey, where they welcomed two children, Julie and David, both of whom brought Larry joy, awe and more than the occasional consternation.  As he watched his children grow, his work life flourished as he rose through the ranks in the banking world, starting out as a personal banker for high profile clients in New York City and later moving to Inventory Finance (he also served in the National Guard for 10 years and worked in real estate through retirement). Life was active, exciting, not without challenges, complex and yet fulfilling. Through it all, his heart remained committed to his faith and he was usually found singing each Sunday in the church choir. Larry was a humble man, regularly involved in charitable organizations, lending his hand whenever someone needed it. He walked through life generously touching the lives of many.

For some, Disney World is the happiest place on Earth. For Larry, it was the golf course. It mattered not if he was on a local County course or the infamous Pebble Beach, as long as he could play a round. If he wasn’t home on a sunny weekend afternoon, you could be sure he was chasing birdies on the back nine of a local course. He regaled you with stories of impossible shots and talked at length about the intricacies of the game.

Once Julie and David had settled into their adult lives, Larry became “Grampy” to five beloved grandchildren, Elliott, Sydney, Olivia, Luke, and Wesley. Each one filled a large chunk of his heart and whenever any of them were around, Larry could be heard laughing as if he couldn’t believe his luck that these grandchildren were a part of him. He had a remarkable way of making each one feel special and this extended to his son-in-law, Ed, and daughter-in-law, Christie, both of whom always felt loved and welcomed as members of the family.

With their nest empty, Larry and Eunice moved to New Hampshire for a slower pace of life and to enjoy the beautiful nature it offered. As they settled in Jaffrey, Larry sang in the choir, enjoyed rounds of golf with his golfing buddies and soaked in the wonder of the changing light atop Mount Monadnock. Larry had settled into the New England way of life but continued to cherish the friends and family which meant so much to him throughout his life.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the World Central Kitchen (wck.org), an organization that provides food during times of disaster. Tackling food insecurity was a cause near and dear to Larry throughout his life. Larry also donated a large portion of his time to support those affected by cancer. Donating to a cancer organization would be another wonderful way of honoring him.
