With his family by his side, Lawrence Petroni of Morris passed away peacefully on May 7, 2022, at the Morris Hospital.
Lawrence was born in Winnipeg in 1949 to Samuel and Isabela Petroni (Shinnie). A high-spirited youth, Lawrence was always happy to share stories, such as the time he bought a car just so he could go to Victoria Beach, or when he and his cousin bought a gas station.
Well-known in the auto industry, Lawrence had sold vehicles to hundreds of people in Emerson, Morris, and Selkirk. To his last days, he was always interested in talking about cars, and he always enjoyed "going for a drive."
Family was important to Lawrence, and his family have so many memories of the trips they took. He and Linda had a spot at Perch Bay Resort in Keewatin for many years, where they made many lifelong friends, and did a lot of fishing.
Lawrence leaves behind his wife of over 51 years, Linda; sister Janice Amborsky (Greg); daughters, Cheryl (Scott Crick) and Kristy; and granddaughters, Elisabeth and Grace Crick.
The family would like to thank the staff at Boundary Trails Health Centre and the Morris Hospital for their kindness and care in Lawrence's last days.
Cremation has taken place, and a celebration of his life will be on Saturday, June 18, 2022 at 11:30 a.m., Manitoba Stampede Saloon, Morris, Manitoba.
Donations may be made to The Morris and Area Foundation.
