1919 - 2016 Obituary Condolences
EASTMAN, Allan Lawrence A. Lawrence Eastman passed away on July 9, 2016. Born July 28, 1919, in Boston, Massachusetts, Larry was the only child of Benjamin Smith Eastman and Janet Louise Greenhood. A member of the class of 1942 at Harvard, he went to work for the Bath Iron Works in Maine during World War II building ships. After the war he returned to Boston with his first wife Ruthann MaLette and ran Eastman Funeral Service in Brookline. Son Allan Lawrence, Jr. was born in 1948 and son Mark Elliott was born in 1951. After the family sold the funeral home, Larry eventually started a new career in real estate sales and property management and established Eastman Realty Management. In 1961 he married his second wife Joan Marie Fitzgerald, moved to Arlington, and had two more children: Janet Marie in 1962 and Bradford Scott in 1964. Larry was a lovable, kind, funny, patient, supportive and steadfast son, husband, father and friend, and he will be sorely missed. He is survived by his wife Joan M. Eastman of Arlington, MA, his children Allan L. Eastman of Lompoc, CA, Dr. Mark E. Eastman (Geraldine O'Shea) of Jackson, CA, Janet M. Eastman and Brad S. Eastman of Santa Barbara, CA, grandchildren Laurel M. Eastman of Cabarete, Dominican Republic, Dr. Amelia S. Eastman (Brian Pickett) of La Jolla, CA, Keiko Marie and Maya Mioko Eastman of Santa Barbara, CA, great-grandchildren Andrew Lawrence ("little A. Lawrence") and Lindsey Grace Pickett of La Jolla, CA, and dance partner and best friend Geraldine Hebb of Plymouth, MA and her children and grandchildren. There will be a private celebration of Larry's life among his family, and his ashes will be buried alongside his parents at Kearsage Cemetery in North Conway, New Hampshire.
