Lawrence Noonan passed away on Tuesday, June 8, after a valiant and long struggle with failing health. His legacy will be felt by many as his tenure at Stony Brook spanned more than 32 years.
Noonan’s service began in 1978 as budget director, and he continued to influence the future of the University and provide immeasurable support and foresight in his subsequent positions in the Provost’s Office and finally as associate dean for the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
“Larry was not only an invaluable member of our team, but also a close friend and confidant to many of us,” said Yacov Shamash, Dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be made to the Lawrence E. Noonan Scholarship Fund. Checks should be mailed to College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, 127 Engineering, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY 11794-2200, Attn: M. Mastauskas.
