Lawrence R. McCloskey, 77, of Gloversville, departed from us to our Heavenly Father on Thursday, December 26, 2013. He was born in Gloversville on July 29, 1936, to Margaret and Lawrence McCloskey. Larry was a Nationwide agent for 39 years. He served in the National Guard and was a member of the Jaycees. Larry loved Saratoga race track and telling unending strings of jokes, which will be missed.
