Dr. Larry Genender, the oldest of three children, was born in 1934 in Montreal, Canada. His father was born in the country of Georgia and his mother in Poland; they came to America in the 1920s. Larry graduated from Strathcona High School in 1951 and then from McGill University in 1955, at which time he began medical school. He knew he wanted to be a doctor from the time he was in ninth grade, and was strongly encouraged and supported by his parents. Larry married his wife, Joan, in 1962. They moved to Montreal in 1966, and there, Larry, a surgeon, opened up his own practice. Eventually Larry’s family settled in Dallas where Larry and Joan have been important supporters of the Dallas Jewish Community.
