Lawrence Albert Quintman, painter, sculptor, wood carver, husband, father, grandfather, master of spoon nose, passed away on Sunday November 22, 2015 at the age of 80.

Larry was born to Myron and Rita Quintman, and raised in Crown Heights in Brooklyn, NY. He studied architecture and fine arts at Brooklyn College. Following a stint in the Navy, he embarked on a long and successful career in advertising and marketing. He went on to establish his own firms, LAQ Marketing in Manhattan and later QLM in Princeton, NJ. Larry was an accomplished artist who painted in oils and pastels, sculpted in clay, worked in bronze, and crafted fine furniture. After moving to Wilmington, NC in 1997, he turned his talents to woodcarving and became an award-winning carver of birds and wildlife. He was a member and past president of Cape Fear Wood Carvers and established “the Garage People,” a group of carvers and ship builders that met in his home workshop. He shared a love of travel, fine wine, and gourmet food with Judy, his spouse of more than thirty-five years.

He is survived by his wife Judy; his sister Alice Greenblatt and her husband Harvey; his daughter Debbie Walsh, her husband David, and their children Devin, Maggie, and Eric; his daughter Gail Ferdinando, her husband Ken, and their children Kyle, Keith, and Abby; and his son Andrew, his wife Analis, and their daughter Maya. He will be missed greatly by his family and the many friends whose lives he touched over the years.

A graveside service will be held at Fairview Cemetery (1100 E. Broad St, Westfield, NJ) on Saturday November 28 at 11:30 AM. A celebration of Larry’s life will be held in Wilmington, NC on December 12.

A donation in his memory can be made to Lower Cape Fear Hospice, 1414 Physicians Drive, Wilmington, NC 28401.
