So sorry to hear this sad news. Lawrence will always be remembered by me as a soft spoken helpful man who could fix anything. Truly a man that anyone who called him a friend admired. He is now with Jesus and the many others that have gone to heaven before him. I pray for Jesus’s comfort on the Rosewell family at this time. God Bless

The day I took the picture that is with Lawrence’s Obituary, was so typical of the the many adventures I was lucky enough to share with him. There were safari’s for squirrels, and early morning crow hunts or just tall stories on the banks of Scott’s Creek. Then visits to ask how should we fix this. We send our love and condolences to all. He will always be missed.

My deepest sympathy to the entire amazing Rosewell Family. You are all such good people and it is easy to see why. Lawrence and Gwen are such terrific role models. He is in a better place and has run a very good race. Be thankful for having been blessed with such a good husband, father and grandpa. I always enjoyed chatting with him, whether it was at church or in Canadian Tire.

-Mark Robinson

Our heartfelt condolences to Ken and family at this sad time. We will never forget the years he spent as a mechanic at L&H motors . Always was so pleasant to deal with.

-Gary and Lorna Kennedy

My deepest sympathies to all the Rosewell family. Lawrence always held a special place in my heart and the lives of the kids and dogs. So much like a grandfather them. Motorcycle rides in the back bush, a candy and special interest or help in all their projects. A best friend to Sackett and Quigley, they spent almost as much time with him or on his doorstep as at home! He was such a supportive and helpful neighbor ♥️, even to the point of being my fire fighting partner. Rest peaceful Lawrence, your knowledge, kindness and generosity is a legacy you leave in many hearts.
