His Legacy…George Maynard Lawrence Jr., 65, passed away May 1, 2022.  He was born on April 15, 1957, in Ann Arbor, Michigan to George Maynard Lawrence Sr. and Geraldine (Aiken) Lawrence. George married his beloved wife Judith Cate, on January 10, 2010 at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Hamburg, Michigan. George was a creative man of many interests who enjoyed tinkering and traveling. He and his wife Judy were long-time member of St. Paul Lutheran Church, where George was baptized and they were married. George was very caring, and was always willing to help anyone in need. He especially loved children, and he stepped in as a father figure to many who lost their fathers. He also had many friends, and when he made a friend, he would keep them for life. Most of all, George loved his family and friends. After his retirement, he and Judy went on a five-week road trip around America. He would also take his grandchildren camping at Grandpa’s Mountain and on a trip to Luddington. He would do anything to spend time with the people he loved. He will be missed by many, many.
