Sentimental Sunday~In Loving Memory ~ Lawrence R Huyck~


Lawrence Raymond Huyck
Born: 15 June 1932, St. Ignace, Mackinac, Michigan
Died:  1 May 1994, St. Ignace, Mackinac, Michigan
Burial:  Lakeside Cemetary, St. Ignace, Mackinac, Michigan

I did not have the priveledge of meeting Uncle Lawrence before he left this place, Joan (or Joni as he called her) and his family very much. 

I spoke with my "Aunt Joan"  regarding "Uncle Lawrence" and she told me that they meet at a place in St. Ignace called " Danny's Bar".  She told me that they dated for 4 yrs before she left for Detroit.  She returned some 11 years later and they again dated for another 3 yrs, before getting married on 28 December 1977 in St. Ignace.  I asked "Aunt Joan" about something funny she remembered about "Uncle Lawrence" and she said that everyday when she would return home, he would say "Everyone back up, Joni is about to take her girdle off". 

"Aunt Joan" ended our conversation by telling me that "Uncle Lawrence"  was a "TREASURE!"
