Lawrence Mapps Obituary
MAPPS My name is Lawrence Mapps. I was born October 16, 1946 in Middlesex County NJ. I passed away on Thursday, June 8, 2017 shortly after midnight. Soon after I was born, I was adopted by George and Ernestine Mapps. In 1952 we moved to San Mateo, FL and then to Jacksonville, where I grew up. I joined the U.S. Navy reserves my junior year of high school so I would be able to serve my country as soon as possible. I graduated from Paxon High School in 1965. I then proceeded to serve my country for 23 years. I am a Vietnam veteran and I retired from the Navy in 1987 as a Senior Chief. I leave behind my wonderful, beautiful, loving wife Karen; my beautiful son, Larry and his wife, Catrina; and my two wonderful, vibrant granddaughters, Keikilani and Samantha. I also leave behind many other family members and friends. Nobody could have asked for or had a better more loving family and friends. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hospice or to the .
