The briefly lived in Boston and in 1955, after having their first two children, they moved to Burlington purchasing a home on Lantern Lane. Lantern Lane was a wonderful neighborhood to grow up with the neighbors being like families to each other.
Lawrence was an awesome husband and father. It wasn’t about the monetary things in life for his family, instead he made sure that his children had fulfilled and fun childhoods. There was a tree house in the back yardalong with a firepit, skating rink and go-carts. The yard was filled with animals as well. His daughters each had their own horse, in addition to rabbits and pigeons. They took many camping trips with family and neighbors. Many wonderful memories were made for the Moore family at their home!
Lawrence worked for Southworth Machines of Portland, Maine for three years and then worked for Symmons Industries of Braintree as a machinist for 56 years. He retired in 2021. Lawrence worked hard to provide for his family and always had a second job including his own small machine shop in Burlington. Lawrence was a handy man. He took plumbing and electrical courses. He built his own jeep from scratch and proudly drove it in the Burlington July 4th Parade.
Betty and Lawrence had a wonderful marriage. They enjoyed square dancing. During their retirement years they enjoyed taking their motor home cross country.
