He worked on his family’s farm where he mastered the lifelong art of farming and carpentry, becoming a skilled craftsman at an early age. In Monticello, he met and fell in love with his beloved wife of 73 years, Olive Marie Graves, where they wed on January 3, 1947.

They soon returned to Arkansas where they had two more sons, David and Mark. In the late 1950’s, Lawrence moved his young family from Arkansas to Richardson, Texas until the early ‘70s when they moved to Royce City, Texas building their dream home together as a family, which was to be their permanent residence until 2018. Lawrence worked in the local Dallas area as a general contractor and skilled craftsman. He was a deeply religious man serving as a deacon and leader in his church.
