The life insurance agents and financial advisors join the many other New Yorkers mourning the passing of longtime state Senator William Larkin.  Our sympathies go out to his wife, Pat, son Bill, and many other relatives and friends.

Bill Larkin was a friend to so many, and NAIFA-NYS was honored to be among that group.  Senator Larkin was especially generous with his time, talent and unbridled love for his beloved United States Military Academy at West Point, where he served his country for so many years, when he hosted NAIFA-NYS’ conference there several years ago.  He put the cadets center-stage to meet with our members to talk about their commitment to this great nation, and he shared his own recollections of teaching and serving at the Academy.  Our members were honored to be in the presence of such heroes, and Senator Larkin was at the top of that list.

Unfortunately, there are not many like Bill Larkin left in this world, and we are truly experiencing a loss with his passing.  But we know that this good and faithful servant made the most of his ninety-plus years on this earth serving his community, his state and his country with honor.  His family should rightfully be proud, and we thank them for sharing Senator Bill Larkin with us all.​
