On May 27, 2020, Lawrence “Larry” John Swoboda, passed away at the age of 70. Left to treasure his memory are his wife Janet (née O’Malley), children Bo and Peg, siblings Thomas (Carolyn), Michael, Peter (Sharon) and Jean (Larry) Delahanty. He is reunited in death with his parents, Albert and Jean, and brother, Theodore. He was an uncle and cousin to many, a beloved friend to countless others. Boda, a die-hard White Sox fan and the legendary owner of the Double Bubble, was a lifelong member of St. Gertrude Parish and a pillar of the Edgewater neighborhood. Once life returns to normal, a funeral mass will be held (details to follow) and the family invites you to join them in celebrating Larry’s life in the most fitting way possible—at the Double Bubble. Please honor Larry’s wishes by donating to the Kellogg Cancer Center in lieu of flowers. And always tip your bartender.

  1. My condolences to Larry’s family. I was friends with Larry in high school and I had the opportunity to reconnect at our 50th reunion. He was still as sweet as ever! Our world needs more people with a heart like his. Rest in peace.

  2. My deepest sympathy on the passing of a wonderful man. If I wanted the truth I would ask Larry. When he spoke folks were silent and listened. It usually led to laughter but every so often someone might have needed a reminder as to how to act. God blessed those who knew Larry Swaboda and I was better for having known him. Jim Leahy
