Lawrence Wm. John Avery
April 8, 1941 - June 22, 2020

The family of Lawrence Wm. John Avery sadly announce his passing at Stevenson Memorial Hospital, Alliston, Ontario on June 22, 2020. Beloved husband and soulmate of Berta (Higgon) for 55 years.

Brother of the late Joyce Johnson, the late Lloyd Avery, Joan Anderson (Larry), Helen Graveline (Murray) and Howard (Janet).

He was so proud of his family and loved having family gatherings to catch up on family news and all that his grandchildren were doing.

My deepest condolences to you and your family Berta. The one thing I remember often about Lawrence was his joking about my name and how "cheap Wayne could have at least called you nickel instead of penny". Cherish all of the memories and know that he and Dad will be stirring things up together once again. My thoughts are with you all.
