Obituary of Stephen Brotmann

In Memoriam: S. Lawrence Brotmann (January 3, 1939 – January 15, 2024)


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Stephen Lawrence (“Larry”) Brotmann, of Pound Ridge, New York, who died on January 15, 2024. Larry left behind a legacy of warmth, kindness, and joy.


Larry was born on January 3, 1939 in Philadelphia, PA and grew up in Atlantic City, NJ. He spent a lifetime dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of those around him. His passion for books, music and all things academic (both historic and contemporary) was evident in every aspect of his life and were only surpassed by his love and dedication to his family, friends and community.  Larry was a proud descendant of the founders of Brotmanville, New Jersey and always maintained close ties to his roots in southern New Jersey.


A graduate of Dickinson College (BA ’60) and Columbia Law School (JD ’63), Larry was a practicing attorney for over forty years. He also earned a master’s degree from Manhattanville College in Biblical Archaeological Studies in 1993. He was not only admired for his professional achievements but also his numerous contributions to his community including having assumed leadership roles in Kiwanis, the Pound Ridge Zoning Board, and, until two weeks ago, he proudly served as Moderator for a well-loved (and well attended) lecture series at the Pound Ridge Library.


Family was always at the center of Larry’s world, and he leaves behind a legacy of love, wisdom, and enduring familial bonds. He is survived by his wife of 63 years, Marilyn, sons Andrew (Lisa), Matthew (Lisa) and Stephen (Charity), and grandchildren, Alison, Emily, Eric, Sam, Lucy, Jack, Reid and Aaron.  He was immensely proud of and deeply adored his family and was, in turn, adored by them.


A memorial gathering will be held at 1:00PM, Sunday, January 21, 2023 at Conant Hall, 257 Westchester Ave., Pound Ridge, NY, where friends and family can gather to celebrate the life of S. Lawrence Brotmann and share their memories. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.


As we mourn the loss of a remarkable person, let us also remember the joy, laughter, and inspiration that Larry brought into our lives.
