The fourth son of Irish schoolteachers, Lawrence Creegan inherited his parents’ sense of whimsy and fun. He grew up in Warwick, Rhode Island where he graduated from high school in 1973.
Larry attended Johnson & Wales University, earning an Associate Degree in Culinary Arts in 1978. He began his many adventures after graduating, from snowbird treks at ski resorts around the country to balmy Florida winters. In 1982, he moved to Block Island for four long years on “the rock” where he cooked, tended bar and worked construction.
Larry wandered the country again and eventually settled on Rhode Island’s southern coast where he began a successful home remodeling business and chefs himself out when he needs a change in venue.
Larry is an avid fisherman, loves music, concerts and traveling. True to his New England roots, he is a diehard Red Sox, Patriot and PC Friar Basketball fan. Larry finds himself invited to many unusual parties because of his outrageous outfits – and because he always brings something really special to eat!
Larry is well known for always having a good joke to tell and has dedicated his life to making people laugh.
As his first book illustrates, Larry has also raised Halloween costuming to an art form.
