Marty, as he was known by his friends, was born in Torrance, California to Thomas Joseph Lawlor Jr. and Sylvia Herrera Lawlor. He had a childhood filled with rambunctiousness and love with his four siblings, Joe, Veronica, Jenine and Julie. He graduated from Bishop Montgomery High School and Loyola Marymount University with an Accounting degree and spent the bulk of his professional career as a Health Care Administrator. He spent 16 years at UCLA Medical Center, followed by 15 years as the Director of Finance for the University of Michigan Pathology Department. His work was recognized by numerous accolades and national awards. When he wasn't working, Marty dedicated his life to raising his children, attending Michigan sporting events, coaching his children's' baseball, soccer and basketball teams, and enthusiastically rooting for all LA sports teams. He enjoyed traveling with his girlfriend and was always planning their next adventure. Golf was a lifelong passion, as was his commitment to mentoring and helping to improve the lives of others. Marty is survived by his children, Maxwell, Sarah and Brendan Lawlor; his loving partner, Andrea Springsteen; his mother, Sylvia Lawlor; and his siblings; along with numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and colleagues, whose lives were richer for having known him.
