Lawrence ("Larry") Romano Giacin went to heaven on September 20, 2021 at the age of 89. Born in Philadelphia to Guido and Dora his family moved to Hollywood, Florida in 1935. Lawrence graduated from South Broward High School in 1952.
Larry married Carol Howman in 1965 at Little Flower Church in Hollywood, Florida and was married for over 50 years. Carol predeceased him in 2016. Larry is survived by two sons, Larry G. Giacin, wife, Page (Tyler & Brooke), Michael R. Giacin (Michael A. & Thomas J.), brother Robert A. Giacin, Wife, Kay (Dorene & Lisa) and numerous cousins in the northeast.
Larry carried on his father's legacy in a very successful tile business in Hollywood for over 40 years. He contracted with many notables in Golden Beach, Miami Beach and Hollywood. In addition, Larry continued with a commercial farm corn-picking business established by his father.
Larry was a true Florida Gladesman and conservationist. He knew the Florida Everglades very well and understood the extreme elements of the swamp. He restored an historic hunting camp in the Glades, and enjoyed buggy riding and air boating with his family.
Larry was also a seasoned hunter and angler, and he believed humans should live in association with the planet, and that true wealth was found in the wilderness and waters of nature.
Larry and his beloved wife, Carol, enjoyed RV travels throughout the U.S. in their RV, camping in much more luxury than their early years in the swamp. These extensive adventures made many golden memories with them and the many diverse friends they met along the way.
Larry always had a smile on his face, a unique story to tell, and was an inspiration to all who knew him. He will be missed but not forgotten. The family deeply appreciates the personal attention all of his caregivers gave him 24/7 especially Joni, Marie, Velma & Kareen.
Join the family in a celebration of Larry's life at the Boyd- Panciera Funeral Home at 6400 Hollywood Blvd. on Sept 30, 2021 from 4 to 7. Larry will be laid to rest Oct 1, 2021, at 10:00 AM at Hollywood Memorial Gardens. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to American Lung Association
