  • Lawrence Droste was born September 27, 1945 in Dodge City Kansas.  On June 1, 2013 he passed away due to heart failure in Tucson Arizona.
    Lawrence was born and raised in Dodge City, but lived all over the United States, finally settling in Tucson Arizona for the last eight years.  Lawrence was a veteran of the Vietnam War, one of the finest welders around, and the toughest son of a gun many of us will ever meet.
    Lawrence is survived by his son, Nicholas, and daughter, Sara; four grandchildren, five siblings, and many nieces and nephews.
    Lawrence was a dedicated father, brother, and son.  He was a mischievous jokester who would do anything for a friend in need, and he will be missed by people around the world.
    A memorial will be held at 1pm on July 20th, 2013 at the Dodge House on 2408 West Wyatt Earp.   In Lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his name to the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
