Obituary for Lawrence Corbett Ward

WHITE PLAINS - Lawrence Corbett Ward, age 83, passed away on Saturday April 4, 2020 at White Plains Medical Center due to complications from a heart condition. Lawrence was born on June 30, 1936 at New York Hospital to his parents, Albert and Helene Ward. He grew up in the Bronx before raising his family in homes on Long Island, Somers, and ultimately in White Plains, New York.

Lawrence graduated from Mount Saint Michaels High School in the Bronx and earned his Bachelor's degree in Hostory, as well as his Master's degree, from Fordham University. In addition, he had been working towards his Ph.D. in Communications from New York University. After many years in the private sector, including Harper & Row Publishing, his career transitioned into academia when he became an Associate Professor in Mercy College's Business department, Dobbs Fery, New York, where he taught until his retirement in 2012.

Lawrence was an avid reader and enjoyed frequent gatherings with his former Mercy colleagues to discuss the political landscape. In addition to his love of books, he also was an avid fan of the NY Mets and NY Giants.

He is predeceased by his lovely wife Mary Ann Kenny and his oldest son Stratford Ward. Lawrence is survived by his younger brother Albert Ward and his family of Brooklyn, New York; and by his children, Christopher Ward of White Plains, Cora Motts of Poughkeepsie, and Gregory Ward of White Plains; and by his grandson, Michael Motts of White Plains.

A memorial service to homor his life will be held at a future date.
