    Lawrence “Larry” David Gorin JD ’73 passed away quickly and peacefully on October 14, 2016. He was 71.

    Larry was born in Chicago on May 2, 1945. He grew up in Los Angeles and graduated from California State University in 1966. The following year he married Carolyn Barde, who wisely moved them to Portland. Larry attended law school while he and Carolyn raised their two young children, Aaron and Heather.

    Larry frequently lectured on paternity law, wrote chapter 16 of Oregon Family Law (published by Oregon State Bar, 2008), and was known for his extensive knowledge of the subject by his many admiring colleagues in the legal community. In 2010, he was presented the Professionalism Award by the Oregon Academy of Family Law Practitioners.

    He was to be admired not only for his legal career, but also for his cherished family life. There is a saying that “the best thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother,” and boy did he love his wife Carolyn. They were married for nearly 50 years. Larry’s love extended to his children; his daughter-in-law, Vanessa Bogaert; his grandchildren, Leo and Max Gorin and Jackson and Tahlia Friedman; his brother, Howard Gorin, and Howard’s wife, Sharon; and to his many adoring family and friends. Our sweet Larry will always be loved and missed.
