Born and raised in Alberta in 1978, Lawrence decided to move from Calgary to BC and settled in Salmon Arm where he stayed for over 28 years, most of those on Silver Creek Road. Lawrence was a voracious reader, never able to put a book down, but his true passion was learning everything there was about Canadian History. He liked to say he was still an Albertan at heart and especially loved the Foothills area where he and Judy stopped often. Friends of Lawrence will remember his infectious laugh, his ability to fix almost anything and where the coffee pot was always on for those who dropped by. At the request of the family and Lawrence, there will be no service.

Memorial donations in Lawrence’s name may be made to the Salmon Arm Women’s Shelter, Box 1463, Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 4P6. Arrangements entrusted to Fischer’s Funeral Services & Crematorium Ltd., Salmon Arm, (250) 833-1129,
