Laurence was a locomotive engineer for CP rail until his retirement in 2010. Upon his retirement his favourite saying was, “Everyday is Saturday.”

Over the years he was involved and volunteered in many ways throughout his community. He was known for his humour, his compassion and was always ready to give a helping hand to anyone who asked.

The thing he enjoyed the most was spending time with his family.

The funeral service was held August 20, 2013 at St. Matthew’s Parish in Surrey, B.C. The service was officiated by Father Augustine and Bishop Richard Gagnon.

Laurence will be greatly missed by his wife Kathy and their sons; Sandy, Kelly (Holly), Steven and by all who knew him.
