With heavy hearts, we share that Lauren “Larry” E. Lawrence of Akron, Ohio was called home by our Lord on Monday, August 30, 2021 at the age of 72. Larry was born on February 25, 1949 to mother, Norma J. Lawrence and father, Charles E. Lawrence. He is preceded in death by both of his parents, as well as, his brother, Donald and sister, Deidra.
Larry was a beloved husband, father, and grandfather. He dedicated his life to family, friends, and community. Larry was always the first to offer his hand to those in need; his strength and compassion guided him. A life well lived, he was an avid fisherman, bowler, golfer, and card player. He is deeply loved and we hope that all can celebrate the good memories of him.
He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Shari; his children, Michael (Janice), Melissa (Anthony), Anthony, Michelle, and Tamara; and his grandchildren, Craig, Tyler (Rachel), Brandon, Hailey, Drake, Alexa, Nicholas, Erin, Ashley, and Madison.
