Lawrence Motti Jr. was called home on August 24th, 2020 in New York.
He is survived by his parents, Lawrence Motti Sr. and Jean Bartomeo and two sisters, Jennifer Motti and Anntoinette Motti Mericle. And by two sons, Paul and John Motti, and two grandsons, Jack and Zane Motti.
A big man with a big heart and an even bigger presence. He will be remembered by those who loved him in return, as a big hug and a big laugh. Lawrence will be missed by everyone who knew him. Always around with a bit of advice, or a joke, Lawrence was always there to provide a laugh or a smile.
The Bartomeo and Motti families would like to extended thanks to those who reached out and provided emotional support and prayers for our family.
He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Sincero and Valentina Motti, and Louis Bartomeo, and his daughter Frances Motti
