Larry F. Kaye

July 31, 1948 ~ November 17, 2021 (age 73)


Larry Frank Kaye (73), devoted husband and father, died peacefully surrounded by love on November 17, 2021 after a year long battle with Leukemia

He is survived by his adoring wife and best friend Rosemary Kaye (Bessette), his daughters April Gallagher (Kaye) and her Husband James Gallagher III of Winthrop, Nichole Vatcher (Kaye)  and her husband Mattthew Vatcher of Reading MA., his devoted grandchildren Alexander and Holland and his brother Ronald Kaye of New York.  Larry is predeceased by his loving grandson Joshua and his parents, Ida and Albert Kaye of Winthrop.

Larry was a lifelong Winthrop resident and enjoyed spending time by the ocean, relaxing with family, reading on his porch, and painting. He met Rose while working as a buyer at Filene's Basement in Boston, and they have been side by side ever since.  Together they enjoyed travel, including cruises and family trips to the mountains, and many dinners out around town.  Larry loved spending time with his family and watching his children and grandchildren grow.  He taught them lessons in comfort and kindness.  While his quiet presence will be missed, his strong spirit will remain in our hearts.
