1950 - 2022
Lawrence Daniel Moringiello
October 22, 1950 to January 1, 2022
Lawrence D. Moringiello was born in 1950 in Brooklyn, NY. He is the second of four children of Lawrence A. Moringiello and Mary Moringiello (née Veneziano). He is survived by his sisters Maria Mastromarino and Mary Theresa Nelson and his brother Gerard Moringiello. He is predeceased by his parents.
In 1974, Lawrence married Kathleen Moringiello née Basquill, whom he had known since they were children at St Thomas Aquinas grammar school in Park Slope, Brooklyn. They have three children, Scott, Daria, and Douglas. He is survived by his wife and children, his daughter-in-law Johanna Heinrichs, his son-in-law Joseph Mulhall, and his daughter-in-law Maura Moringiello, along with seven grandchildren: Theodore and Marco Moringiello; John, William, and Kathleen Mulhall; and James and Daniel Moringiello. He and Kathleen were long-time parishioners at St Anne’s Church in Garden City, NY, where their children were educated, and where they were blessed with many friends.
Lawrence was educated at St Augustine High School, Manhattan College, and St John’s University School of Law. He was a proud alumnus of all three institutions, and he often dedicated his time and resources to their alumni events.
Lawrence was Counsel at Heights Abstract, Ltd in Brooklyn, NY. He was a long-time member of the Catholic Lawyers Association and the Columbian Lawyers Association of Brooklyn, and he served as president of both groups. As an attorney, he helped countless clients and fellow lawyers navigate the complexities of real estate and family law.
He was an active member of the North Hills Country Club. He also enjoyed boating and fishing, especially on the east end of Long Island. Most importantly, though, Lawrence loved being around his many friends. And if those meetings with friends happened to include vodka on the rocks or licorice, even better. He was fiercely loyal to all those who were blessed enough to call him a friend. He had a quiet dignity, a keen intellect, a wry sense of humor, and an amazing sense of style. He was a devoted son, a caring brother and uncle, and the best husband, father, and grandfather we could have asked for.
We miss him deeply.
