Arthur "Artie" Lawrence, Jr. Obituary

Arthur Foden Lawrence, Jr., known affectionately as Artie, passed away peacefully on January 21, 2024 at his home in White Hall, MD. Born on December 8, 1964, in Monkton, MD, Artie's zest for life and his sense of humor left an indelible mark on everyone he met.

Artie's formative years were spent in the town of Monkton. He graduated Valedictorian from Fishburne Military School in Waynesboro, VA.

Artie was a devoted husband to his loving wife, Lisa Lawrence, and a proud father to his children, Maddi and Austin Lawrence. He also had a daughter-in-law, Sarah Lawrence. Artie's joy was multiplied with the arrival of his granddaughter Karissa and anticipating another. He was also a proud father of his four-legged children Izzy and Lulu.

Artie loved and learned a lot from his dad, Arthur Lawrence, Sr., who helped him to achieve many milestones in his life. He also loved his stepmother, Sandra Patterson. He was a beloved brother to Melissa Lawrence Read and brother-in-law to Tom Read, stepbrother to Jay Longobardi (Kim) and Jennifer Longobardi. He also held a special bond with his in-laws, George and Charlotte Fletcher. He also shared many fond memories with his two grandmothers, who he loved dearly.

In Artie's professional life he approached every challenge with a can-do attitude and a smile that could light up a room. His colleagues often spoke of his mentorship and his uncanny ability to elevate any situation with his humor and grace.

As we remember Artie, we celebrate a life lived with purpose and passion. He was a man who loved deeply, laughed heartily, and left a legacy of joy and resilience. His memory will continue to be a source of comfort and inspiration to all who were privileged to know him.
