Throughout their 60 year marriage, Bill and Betty traveled to frequent car shows, car races and swap meets all over the country. His nieces, nephews and other passengers will always remember the excitement of going for a joyride with Uncle Bill in one of his fast cars. Bill served his country in the United States Navy stateside in Bainbridge, Maryland.

Bill was preceded in death by his parents. Survivors include his wife of 60 years, Betty Lenora Horton Lawrence of the home; daughter, Mary Elaine Lawrence of Marshall; son, Lee William Lawrence of Russellville; good friend of the family, Jeff Lawless and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

I’m so sorry to hear this! I remember my dad ( Danny mainord ) and Bill were close friends for all my life until I lost my father. They shared the same love for classic cars! He was a good man. Prayers for Betty & family.
