He came into this world on June 27, 1964, in Orrville, Ohio. His 54 years were filled sharing love with family and friends as only a special child can do. At 18, he chose to live at Bethesda Faith Village. He was a special Olympian on the Faith Village team receiving many gold, silver, and bronze medals while excelling in shot put and basketball. He lived with health problems his entire life but was able to graduate from Shawnee Mission North High School. He worked in the community and JCDS Developmental Supports, retiring to the Faith Village Options Program where he spent the last decade with friends and staff. He enjoyed day trips to Target, Walmart, Scheels and other big box stores where he enjoyed driving the motorized shopping carts. He loved sports of all kinds including NASCAR and professional wrestling. He always believed the Chiefs were going to the Super Bowl and the Royals would make the play offs. He will be greatly missed by all that came into his life. He is survived by his parents Kathy and Larry Eilenberger, siblings, Abby (Steve) Haden, Paul (Pam) Eilenberger and Kimm (Kyle) Sinclair as well as cherished nieces and nephews. A special thank you to all the wonderful people that helped Lawrence to live an independent and special life!
