Lawrence Humphrey Zuckerman, 89, of North Branford, CT and formerly of Trumbull, CT, passed away on March 28, 2021 at home surrounded by his loving family. Larry was born in Brooklyn, NY, the eldest son of Min and Max Zuckerman.
After graduating from Brooklyn Technical High School, Larry earned his bachelor's degree from Brooklyn College. He then joined the US Army and served during the Korean War. After serving his country for two years, he earned his MBA from the University of Michigan. Larry began his professional career with General Electric, working for them in marketing and product development for over twenty years in Schenectady, NY, Rome, GA and Bridgeport, CT. His career also included a few years at the SC Johnson Company in Racine, WI and the Timex Corporation in Greenwich and Waterbury, CT. In the late 1970's, Larry realized his dream of opening and operating his own marketing research firm, Zuckerman Research Inc., which he ran until he retired in 1996.
In 1958, Larry married the love of his life, the former Adele Burack. This May, they would have celebrated their 63rd anniversary. Together, Larry and Adele raised three children, Jacqueline, Craig and Andrea.
After retirement, Larry and Adele traveled throughout the world and also enjoyed spending time at their vacation home in VT. Larry volunteered as a literacy tutor in Bridgeport and with Habitat for Humanity. He and Adele were active members of Congregation B'nai Israel in Bridgeport.
Larry was an amazing husband, father and grandfather. He never said a mean word about anyone and he was truly loved by everyone who knew him. His kindness and generosity were his biggest attributes. He will be forever missed but will live in the hearts of Adele, Jacqueline and her husband, Robert Tynan, and their daughters Megan and Emily, Craig and his wife, Teresa, and their daughters Madelyn and Shelley, and Andrea and her husband Eric Stutman and their children, Rachel and Jason.
