Lawrence was born in Lindsay, Ontario on December 3, 1893. He had come to the Peace Country before the start of the war, and returned to his homestead in 1919 after his discharge. His homesteads were located at 8-79-5-W6 and 32-78-5-W6. Lawrence married Eva Fitton a short time later; they had no children. He worked as a lineman for the government telegraph and helped to put in all the telegraph lines in the Peace River country. About 1930 Lawrence was moved north to Keg River where he worked as a government agent for the telegraph, telephone, and postal services until he died in 1975.
