Mr. Lawrence was born on December 30, 1945 in Memphis, TN and was called home to be withhis Lord and Savior on Sunday, March 26, 2023. He Graduated from Hope High School, Hope Arkansas. Larry served in the US Air Force. He enlisted on April 1, 1966 and was discharged on January 14, 1970 after returning home from Vietnam. Those who know Larry best may be surprised that he received not only an HONORABLE discharge, but also the GOOD CONDUCT medal!
He later received his Master’s degree in Psychology from Northeast Louisiana University. He was a devoted member of Covenant Presbyterian Church where he served as an elder. He was also a Commissioned Lay Preacher for the Presbytery of the Pines, supplying pulpit ministry for congregations without full-time pastors. Larry had various jobs over the years but his favorite was his last one when he worked for the State in Vocational Rehabilitation. There, he had the privilege of working with people who usually needed some type of assistance in either keeping their employment due to some disability or assisted them in getting training for new employment. Larry was honored to work with the blind center in Ruston, LA. When he was diagnosed with cancer in 2008, Larry committed himself to use his illness to glorify God.
He was preceded in death by: his father, Rev. Llewellyn Truman Lawrence, and mother, LinealBeard Lawrence; brothers, Rev. William Truman Lawrence, Paul Clark Lawrence, Llewellyn Carey Lawrence; and brother-in-law, Rev. Bill Walsworth. He is survived by: his wife of 45 years, Cheryl Boutwell Lawrence; son, David Truman Lawrence (Stephanie); daughter, Leslie Lawrence Scott (Clay); sister, Dr. Elizabeth Weiss (Jack); and grandchildren, Colton and Avery Scott, and Kathryn Lawrence; sisters-in-law, Barbara Walsworth and Carol Frere; and numerous nieces and nephews.
The family wishes to thank the staff of North Fresenius Dialysis Center for their excellent care.
