Lawrence was born in Oyen, Alberta on June 24, 1928. Lawrence was in Cabri, Saskatchewan working in the oil industry when he met Donna Harris. They were married on September 30, 1952.

Upon returning to Canada in 1959, he joined Precision Drilling. In 1962 he moved his family to Lakeview in Calgary. This is where Corey was born. He loved snowmobiling and driving the boat for anyone who wanted to water ski. Dad was a hard working, dedicated employee at Precision Drilling until 1988 when he retired and moved to Gladys Ridge and then High River. In his senior years he enjoyed shuffle board and carpet bowling. He went to the Senior Winter Games winning many friends and awards. Dad was a wonderful, loyal husband and a great and loving father and grandfather. He was lovingly call Grandpa by seven grandchildren; Lana (John), Carrie (Chris), Tracy (Mike), Terri, Ken (Ashley), Jamie (Andrew) and Brianne, and known as Papa to nine great-grandchildren; Keegan, Jackson, Paisley, Ethan, Chloe, Nolan, Cadance, Knox and Olivia.
