JACKNIN: Lawrence “Larry” Jacknin, a lover of family, friends, long sails into the sunset, and catching the “big one,” has passed away after a long battle with ALS on Tuesday, February 23, 2016. Larry is deeply loved by family and friends and was always there to listen and support others, the true patriarch of all whose lives he touched. He lovingly raised his children with his former wife, Erica Jacknin, in Yellow Springs, Ohio, and lived in Pittsburgh with his wife, Debbie Jacknin. Larry was hardworking and dedicated to providing for his family as demonstrated by work as an electrical engineer, an inventor and most recently, a project manager at Westinghouse Electric. Larry is survived by his wife Debbie Jacknin; two daughters, Madeline Jacknin and Gabrielle Jacknin-Metzger; his stepdaughters, Jacklyn Orefice and Jenny Orefice; his mother, Charlotte Jacknin; brother Sam Jacknin and his wife Laura Jacknin, and brother David Jacknin; sister Jeanette Jacknin; nieces Lauren Blackwell and Grace Jacknin; and nephew Dillon Jacknin. In his final moments of life, Larry moved on peacefully surrounded by seven singing women including Debbie, Sharon, Lauren, Gabrielle, Madeline, Jacklyn and Jenn. His last words were “I love you” to Debbie, who sat by his side. To all who loved him, he has asked each of us to take a swim in his honor. Services were held at Jackson Lytle & Lewis Funeral Home in Yellow Springs, Ohio, followed by burial at Clifton Cemetery. Two shiva services will be held in Pittsburgh, one on Thursday, March 3 at 443 E. 10th Ave. in Munhall. From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. the home will be open to receiving friends and family, and at 7 p.m. there will be a shiva service.
