RIP, Lawrence Santoro

            

It is with deepest regret that we inform you that Lawrence Santoro, writer, podcaster and so much more, passed away July 25 after a brief battle with duodenal cancer. He was 71. Gapers Block has an obituary.

Larry read at Tuesday Funk twice, in January 2012 and June 2013. Here he is reading "Root Soup, Winter Soup."

Memorial services are set for Friday, Aug. 1, at Lakeview Funeral Home, 1458 W. Belmont Ave. Viewing of closed casket is from 5 to 7pm, followed by a short memorial service at 7pm. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the American Cancer Society, noting that you would like it to be earmarked for research into duodenal cancer, or to Imerman Angels, who provide one to one support for cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers. A toast and celebration of Larry's life is planned for sometime in September.
