The death of Larry Gorski, a former Illinois regulator and a life actuary, was announced at the start of the summer meeting of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, Kansas City, Mo.
Gorski died on May 12 of a heart attack. He retired in 2002 from the Illinois Department and consulted afterward.
The announcement was made by Donna Claire representing the American Academy of Actuaries, Washington, during the opening of the Life & Health Actuarial Task Force. Gorski was an integral part of LHATF and other NAIC working groups for many years. He was also awarded the NAIC’s Robert Dineen award for outstanding service as a regulator by the NAIC.
Claire noted that Gorski was also a teacher who taught disadvantaged children and was an amateur astronomer.
After her remarks, LHATF had a moment of silence for Gorski.
