Lawrence “Larry” Salzman, 73, died peacefully at his home on Conesus Lake in New York on March 16, 2024, surrounded by his family. Born in Rochester, NY, Larry was the son of the late Hyman and Sylvia Cohen Salzman.  Larry started college at the University of Buffalo but soon followed his lifelong friends and the hippie lifestyle to New Orleans, where he finished college – a.k.a. had a ton of fun and drank plenty of beer.

After finding Rochester too cold and New Orleans too hot, Larry sought moderation and started law school at the University of Richmond. Though he never practiced law, this turned out to be an excellent choice; a young woman named Bonnie asked him to a baseball game, and they would later marry, remaining in Richmond to raise two devoted kids, Mark and Jill. In addition to his loving wife of 36 years, children, and faithful 4-legged companion Kelly, Larry is also survived by his sister Susan Salzman of Rochester, a reliable presence throughout his life.

Larry was always a hard worker. He chose a career in the commercial real estate business and dedicated much of the past 25+ years to the development of New Town in Williamsburg, Virginia.  Despite a lengthy battle with prostate cancer, he never sacrificed his principles – he found the humor in life, maintained a positive outlook, and doubled down on his commitment to his family and friends.  Life was good to Larry, and so Larry did what he could for others and his community, including proudly serving as a President of his beloved Congregation Beth Ahabah.

A private burial was held in Rochester.  An announcement about a memorial service in Richmond will be made soon, but the family requests privacy at this time.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Congregation Beth Ahabah in Richmond (CLICK HERE to donate online) or to Chabad of Williamsburg (CLICK HERE to donate online).
