Lawrence was a man of God. He loved to spend time with his family and friends. He loved to fish and hunt every chance he got. He didn’t care if he got anything or not, it was about the nature around him and the people with him that he loved the most. He loved to tell jokes and never meet a stranger. His nickname was Gabby because he liked to talk. He will be dearly missed, and we will forever cherish the memories we have with him.
Visitation will be Tuesday, March 29, 2022 from 6 - 7 pm at Pelion Church of the Nazarene. A Celebration of Life Service will follow at 7 pm also in the church sanctuary.
