He graduated from Holmdel High School with honors and went on to obtain a bachelor’s degree from Boston College.  He was an accomplished financial advisor for Merrill Lynch for nearly 15 years and finished his career with Morgan Stanley.

Liam was a proud New Jerseyan and lifelong fan of the New York Jets. He loved Turks and Caicos, Long Beach Island, country music, a good game of poker, his vast network of friends and family, and above all, Stefanie.

His passing resulted from a rare form of neuroendocrine cancer, which he fought bravely, with humor and grace, for 8 months.
