In Memoriam -- Larry Joseph (T-9)
December 1, 1942 - April 26, 2002
Lawrence K. Joseph, “Larry”
passed peacefully surrounded by family and friends. His battle with
pancreatic cancer was a personal journey that was inspirational to all his
up in Glencoe, Illinois, and had a special fondness for Northern Wisconsin
where he met Gail Daubenspeck, whom he later married in 1965. After
attending the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School (with a minor Art
History) he and Gail were Peace Corps volunteers in Turkey. Together they
raised their three children: Ken, Sarah, and Andy. He enjoyed a successful
career in real estate development in which he pioneered the suburban office
park concept. The family moved to Santa Fe in 1979 where he discovered his
passion to become an artist.
years later, he met his wife, Babette Landau, in a painting workshop. His
work was represented at Ernesto Mayans Gallery on Canyon Road in Santa Fe.
He and Babette shared a fervor for art and traveling to remote corners of
mentored friends and family in many situations. He had an uncanny
intellect, and an amazing ability to devise novel and effective solutions to
almost any kind of problem.
is characterized by a zeal for living and giving fully of himself to family
and friends. He loved deeply and was loved deeply in return. He will be
terribly missed by his wife, his three children, his five (soon to be six)
grandchildren, his brothers and sisters, a uniquely close extended family
and many, many friends.
