Edwin Dennis Lawrence, 94, of Homosassa, FL, passed away on November 19, 2022, from complications as a direct result of the Coronavirus. Born October 16, 1928, in Miami, FL, he was the son of the late Harold and Toy Mae (Sapp) Lawrence.


Edwin was a graduate of Key West High School, after which he joined the Marine Corps and married his first wife, Beulah Mae (Rohrbaugh).

He was then employed by the former Bell South, which later became Verizon. He and his time were pivotal in the creation of Fiber Optic Technology. He traversed the globe in the installation process of these technologies.
