January 20, 1967 – March 30, 2021
Laurence loved people and he helped everyone around him. He shared his laughter and wit willingly.
Laurence was predeceased by his brother, Adair Knowles and his sister, Darlene Friesen.
He leaves behind, his mother, Mary Bagshaw and his sisters, Marilyn McKee, Crystal Knowles, and Cindy Elwood. Also, brothers, Danny Montgomery, Chuck Montgomery, Bob Montgomery and Larry Montgomery. He had many nephews and nieces and cousins, too many to list.
Laurence loved the sea and he died at sea. He died a hero trying to save his friends who were clinging to a capsized boat. Everyone loved him and will miss him. He was a fisherman, logger, miner, trapper, and a warrior for Haida Gwaii.
Thank you to everyone who supported us during this tough time. Never has there been such a wonderful son and brother like Laurence.
