It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dad on January 9, 2022 at the Poseidon Personal Care Home.
Dad was predeceased by his loving wife of 68 years, Elizabeth "Betty" in 2019, his son-in-law Jerry and great-granddaughter Kirsten.
Lawrence is survived by sons, Alan (Lois), Lyn, Murray (Carole), Don (Jen); daughters, Audrey, Lorna (Jeff), Wendy; 16 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.
Dad had many jobs but his greatest love was landscaping and gardening.
We would like to thank the staff at Poseidon for their care of dad in the last year and a half.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a charity of your choice.
Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life for Dad will be held at a later date, interment in Chapel Lawn Cemetery.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • Betty and Lawrence were one of a kind! There was always a pot of coffee on the stove and everyone was always welcome to visit! When out of towners came into the city they were always accommodated within their home. I remember when the grandparents passed away their tiny house was so full that if you wanted to get from the kitchen to their living area you had to go out their back door and, run around the side of the house and re-enter thru the front door. There was always room for everybody! To the family....Sorry to hear that they are both gone now! They were a one of a kind and will always be in memory! hugs, Lorraine - Posted by: Lorraine Danielson (friend/visitor) on: Feb 09, 2022

  • So sorry to hear of your Dad/Grandpa's passing. It is so sad for all of you but I am sure he is happy to be with his Betty again - probably they are out dancing by now! We so enjoyed the times we spent with both of them, in person and on the phone. They were such very special people. He was always good natured and always had a great story to tell. He will truly be missed. Our sympathy to all of you. Norinne and Rick - Posted by: Norinne and Rick Lagiewka (Relative) on: Jan 17, 2022
