Lawrence (Larry) Weitzen was born in San Diego in 1955, and it is still home to him and his wife, Mary Lynn. He graduated from UCLA in 1977 and went into the insurance business for the Robert F. Driver Company, now known as Alliant Insurance. After a career spanning 38 years, Larry retired to spend more time with his wife of 40 years, five kids, twelve grandkids and four great-grandchildren. Larry served as the President of the Independent Insurance Industry and Temple Solel. However, his service to Global Communities and previously Project Concern International (PCI) has been his passion, which he shares with Mary Lynn. Together they have visited programs in Guatemala, Malawi, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Zambia, Indonesia and Mexico. Both Larry and Mary Lynn served as Walk Directors in the ’80s, and Larry has served as Chairman of the Audit and Development committees and Chairman of the PCI Board. Inspired by the work of Global Communities, Larry and Mary Lynn look forward to continuing to serve people.
