Our beautiful boy, husband, father and uncle was loved and admired for his kindness toward all those who knew him. He enjoyed meeting and talking to new people and seeing the world from their eyes. He loved music and was an avid and talented drummer. In his younger years he played for the Troopers and Santa Clara Vanguard Drum and Bugle Corps. He enjoyed adrenaline sports including riding his dirt bike and drag racing. He was proficient in IT management.
Lawrence was passionate about shining truth and light on this earth. He savored and appreciated the little moments in life and always followed his excitement and joy. He felt most at home surrounded by the incredible Idaho mountains. His greatest happiness in life was his children and he loved creating beautiful memories with them. He will be missed in our lives very much. He is in the arms of the angels now.
The family will hold a private service on September 3, 2020 and he will be laid to rest at Dry Creek Cemetery in Boise, Idaho.
