To share a fond memory of Lawerance or to offer a condolence to his family, please visit

  • He was the best papa there ever was. His personality was one of a kind and he made an impact on everyone he met. I will miss him so much.

  • I am so sorry to hear of his passing. I met him through Ed when we were just teenagers. Lawrence always teased me calling me “Trish the Dish”. So many fond memories of hanging out with Ed and friends at his home. He is the Grandfather to my niece Amy and nephew Ed so I always felt connected to him through the kids. Prayers of comfort for your family during this time.

    • Thank you, we were just talking about how everyone he met got a nick name, and that’s who they were from that point forward. I know you & Missy wanted to visit & I let him know, I know he would have liked seeing you, & you still would have been Trish-the dish. He’ll certainly be missed.

  • I have so many memories I’d love to share starting from when I first met him when I was 12 yrs old. He would Always say “Julie Rader”…did your mom have any kids that lived…and “hey red what color is your hair” and then would just laugh that big belly laugh. One of the best meals I had was when we all ate spoiled chicken …but I was the only one that got sick. Even though I married and changed my name, I was always “Julie Rader the baby” to him. There wasn’t a thing he wouldnt do for you and would give the shirt off his back. Everyone always felt at home around him and he will be truly missed. RIH pawpa!!!❤

    • I forgot about the “did your mom have any kids that lived” he did ask you that a lot!! Always Julie Rader to him (& me). I remember we would leave school, stop at your house to see what was for dinner, then to my house, & ate accordingly. That was good chicken.

  • He will be missed so very much by me. I was thinking of the times we grew up together and the things we did good and the bad, now it’s gone. I can’t talk to him on the phone anymore, we talked about everything, that’s gone. Yes, I will miss him terribly. He is with the Lord and no longer suffering and that is for the best. Good bye little brother.

  • Sorry to hear of of Lawerance passing. May God Bless the family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Worked with him at Abex for quite a few years .

  • I want to wish the Stover family the best of luck in getting over these hard times.

  • You were always there when I needed you, you use to always joke around with me and make me smile definitely my favorite grandparent! My nick name was “pie head” which I HATED! But as the years went on I saw how much it made you smile and laugh and it started making me laugh too. I will always love you with all my heart and I wish I could hear you call me my nickname one last time. Until we meet again I love you grandpa.

  • Hi Laura,
    I am so sorry you lost your dad!! I still miss not taking him home! We had some good talks while on the road. I miss him!
