  • It deeply saddens us to hear that Lawrence passed away.......our most heart felt sympathies to the family. We were neighbours for many years out at Lakeshore Heights and always kept a watchful eye on Gloria as her illness progressed. I will always remember him as the quite one who always seemed to provide for his family and his generosity never ceased to amaze me!.......You will be missed! - Posted by: Ralph & Debbie Glesmann (Neighbour) on: Mar 28, 2022

  • My condolences to Gloria and all her family. I was shocked when I heard of Lawrence's passing. I knew Lawrence for quite a number of years as I worked for him. He taught me a lot about sheet metal and I really enjoyed the time working for him. He will be sadly missed. R I P . - Posted by: Sheldon Loeb (Co-worker) on: Mar 02, 2022
