Obituary for Lawrence J Vernetti

Comfortably passed away on March 19, 2019 at the age of 86 years old. The Cherished Only child of John & Julia (Brasach) Vernetti.

A devout Catholic and life time parishioner of St Joseph/St Anne church currently known as Our Lady of Fatima.

Lawrence proudly served his country. He was chosen by Selective Service to report on February 6, 1953 at the age of 20 years old. As an only child he didn’t have to serve but he did his Patriotic duty. His time was short and served from February 6, 1953 to January 13, 1955. His time in the Army gave him the opportunity to travel to Okinawa, Japan.

Lawrence was a wonderful caring man who was loved by many including his Best Friend, the late Frank Gable; Family/Neighbors Trudy & William Schuld and their children William, Brittany and Tyler; Longtime friends Carol Gorski, Rita & Judy Auz and the late Trudy & Henry Shembor.

Lawrence enjoyed many things. Some of his favorite things included memories of Special gatherings at Easter & Christmas with the Shembor, Schuld, Bishop, Caballero & Reinke families. The Chicago Cubs, Bears and Blackhawks were favorites of Lawrence. They were always on his radio - as he would like to listen to the live broadcasts.

Lawrence was always independent. Always on the go. He was still driving at the age of 86. He enjoyed looking his best. Always in a button up shirt, clean shaven, manicured. A very sharp man. Personal, polite, caring, loving, old school gentleman. The BEST of the BEST.

Lawrence will always be remembered FONDLY.

Donations can be made in his honor to some of his favorite charities.
WTTW – One of his favorite TV stations
PAWS Chicago – For his love of animals
Our Lady of Fatima Church – For his enduring Faith
