Lawrence had a passion for his Catholic faith and loved sharing this with all. He was especially proud to be born on Marian Feast day of The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and passed away on the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord. He truly was blessed.
In Lawrence’s work life, he was proud to be the youngest floor trader for the TSX, worked as a salesman for Rothman’s Cigarettes but spent most of his life as an entrepreneur. With his brother’s and father, they fashioned several businesses over the years, International Guide and Hotel and Metromap Publication Ltd., the latter being his life’s work.

Kehoe, daughter-in-Law Denah Kehoe and pre-deceased by his son Sean Patrick Kehoe (1972-1975). Lawrence Kehoe Sr. was also blessed with 9 grandchildren (Jason, Shawna, Colin, Tiffany, Katrenah, Monique, Danielle, Shannan, Clayton) and 14 great grandchildren.
