He was predeceased by his mother and father, two sisters Irene Welder and Lavina Pillot as well as his brother Henry “Hank” Knorr.  He leaves his loving wife of 52 years Lillian, daughter Dixie (Lars) Carlson of Quesnel, three step children Jeannie Hill of Lethbridge, AB, Jim Hill of Canoe, Sharon (Dwayne) Gaberel of Salmon Arm, two brothers Eugene (Stella) Knorr of Kelowna, Anton (Frances) Knorr of Kelowna, seven step grandchildren, thirteen step great grandchildren as well as numerous nephews and nieces.
Lawrence grew up on the family farm in Saskatchewan, leaving school to work the farm at thirteen years old.  He began working at Federated Co-op in the early 60’s and remained with them until his retirement at 65 years.
He enjoyed playing the guitar and singing old western songs.  He loved to dance and could kick up a mean polka and old time waltz.  He also liked camping and singing around a campfire.
Many thanks to Dr. Bonthyus and Dr. Britlo as well as the staff on the 2nd floor of Shuswap Lake General Hospital, also to Cy and the girls at Harmony Haven.

  1. Dearest Lillian and Families;

    I was deeply saddened to hear of Lawrence’s passing. He had been a long time friend of my family and at one point in time he had been my babysitter. One thing I do have faith in is that Lawrence will have one huge welcoming committee waiting for him.

    Unfortunately Lillian I won’t be able to attend the service due to prior work commitments. I would like to leave you this following quote from a book of ‘Words of Comfort’ that a dear friend gave to me:

    Those who have lived in our hearts are never really gone.
    As long as we keep them with us, in our hearts and our thoughts, they will be with us always.
    For Love, which is timeless, never ceases to exist.

    I would read this over and over again and it would bring me great comfort after I lost Glenn.

    Once again, my deepest heartfelt sympathies to you, Dixie and families.

    Love Della
