The Class of 1982 mourns the loss of Lawrence, who died Dec. 26, 2022.

Lawrence came to Princeton from West Orange, N.J., and majored in biochemistry, graduating summa cum laude. He went on to medical school at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and completed his residency at Massachusetts General Hospital. Staying at MGH, he became a respected pathologist over three decades of clinical work and pathbreaking research.

Alongwith his devotion to family, Lawrence was fascinated by the stock market and always ready to talk about finance. His generous nature extended to his dogs, ranging from large to very large.

The class shares with Lawrence’s family the deep sense of loss and draws comfort knowing that his life in medicine brought new insights into disease and comfort to patients.

Lawrence is survived by his wife, Cynthia Collins; daughter Hayley; stepdaughter Michaela Durrant; and sisters Janet Bragg and Emily Zukerberg.
