A life-long resident of Revere, he was a graduate of Revere High School, Class of 1978. “Larry” worked in his early career in the construction fields and later as an Exterminator for “Terminix”. After a long time following a formal education, he returned to college at Salem State University, obtaining a degree in “English Literature”. Larry enjoyed an epiphany and became passionate about education, especially, in education for the less fortunate & disenfranchised. It was his goal to begin teaching within the “Special Needs” program, when he suddenly was diagnosed with bladder cancer, four years ago. Even in the last of his illness, he maintained a positive attitude for recovery & beginning his new career.

He is the beloved son to Martin F. Catyb of Revere & the late Deanna H. (Wainwright) Catyb. He is the devoted brother to Martin F. Catyb, Jr. (a teacher in the Beachmont School for over 20yrs.) & his wife, Carole of Dracut, Cheryl A. Catyb of Revere & Susan D. Zaccaria & her husband, Joseph of Danvers. He is the cherished nephew of Elaine Wainwright of Malden. He is also lovingly survived by many other aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces & nephews. In his youth, he was an active member of the First Congregational Church, Revere, largely through the inspiration of his Mom, who was an intensely active member of the Church until her passing.

    Dear Catyb Family.

    I am very sorry to hear that Larry passed away as I just read about it today when we got the Journal. If I knew beforehand, my wife Maria and I definitely would’ve attended his service to offer our deepest condolences to you. As you know, Larry was one of my dearest and closest life-long friends and both of us held so many great and fond memories (I could write pages about things that we did together and the great times that we both had attending different band concerts!). Again, I am sorry to hear and if there is anything that I can do, please feel free to email my wife Maria (mariacsc2@gmail.com) anytime…FYI, I have a lot of family and friends that are in Woodlawn now and my wife and I are always visiting them, including Dee’s gravesite as we always stop and say hello and talk with her when we’re there. We will now add Larry to our ongoing visits when there. Take care and although Larry was taken too soon, he is a very special man and will always be in our hearts, thoughts and prayers.

    Love Eddy and Family
