Larry Santinon, a Manorville father of two and a Center Moriches businessman who helped run his family’s masonry business for decades, died on Tuesday, Oct. 5. He was 56.
Warmly remembered for his contagious laugh and warm smile, friends and family regarded Santinon as someone “who made each day count.”

We will cherish the wonderful memories.”
