Laszlo Papp Obituary

Laszlo Papp’s life journey ended on January 30, 2024 at the age of 62. Laszlo was born February 19, 1961 in Rochester, N.Y. and is predeceased by his parents Julius and Maria Papp. Laszlo is survived by his former wife, Robin Carson; Siblings & their spouses, Maria Papp Washington, Janet Papp Jackson (George), Elizabeth Papp Stinson (Ron), Julius and Candice Papp, Joseph and Melanie Papp, Anna Papp Weidel (Roger), Ildiko Papp Muss (Al), Michael and Shari Papp, and Esther Papp Foster (Ivan); 31 nieces and nephews; many great nephews and nieces; his roommate, Rick, and many friends. 

Laszlo loved his country and proudly served in the Navy for four years in California. He traveled to many parts of the world and often said these were some of the best memories he had. After leaving the Navy, he spent most of his life in California where he owned an automobile repair shop. Laszlo returned to Rochester about 12 years ago.

Laszlo had an enormous heart and wonderful sense of humor. He was generous, loyal, and brave. He always looked out for the underdog. He made friends with people in the neighborhood and talked to everyone. He was intelligent, clever, and full of knowledge which he gained through life experiences. He had extensive knowledge about boiler systems, sailing, geography, auto mechanics, gardening, and salesmanship. 

He cherished his family (Csalad!) and loved his Hungarian heritage, especially the Hungarian dishes his sisters made. He also enjoyed cooking, himself, and often called asking for one of our mother’s recipes. Laszlo was a hard worker, enjoyed telling a good joke and was feisty but sensitive. Living close to his siblings and socializing with family and friends made him happy. We remember the many jokes he told us and that he always had a positive word, no matter how sick he felt. 

Laszlo had a soft spot in his heart for animals and regularly fed his neighborhood birds; he especially loved taking care of his home; his dog, Sampson and his bird, Daisy. 

Laszlo, everyone you left in this world is grieving and we are sad that you are gone, but we are happy that you are free of pain. God knows we will continue to love and miss you until we can meet again.
