Obituary of Lawrence J Stein
Lawrence J. Stein of Jackson, NJ passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family at CentraState Medical Center in Freehold, NJ.
Larry was an intelligent, loving, tenacious, witty, kind, and generous man. He graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University with a degree in Mathematics and was a pioneer in the computer industry building computers in his basement in the 1970’s. He created Computer Mart of New Jersey and then founded and was President of Prodigy Systems, Inc. which were the first retail computer stores on the East Coast. He enjoyed being on one of his many computers, operating ham radios, playing bridge, listening to music and being with his family.

Larry is survived by his daughter and daughter-in-law, Jodi Stein-Erichsen and Michelle Merola, his daughter and son-in-law, Amy Stein-Terceiro and Gerry Terceiro, his adoring grandchildren Zack and Katie Terceiro, his devoted wife and caregiver Anna Poznak, and his grieving sister, Jackie Pilavakis.
