“Lawrence was a tower of strength in defence for Trinidad and Tobago during his career. The thoughts of the  Trinidad and Tobago Football Association and its board of directors are  with Lawrence’s family at this point in time. He is someone who made a  great contribution to football in this country. We will like to express our deepest sympathy on his passing and our prayers are with his family at this most difficult time,” John-Williams stated.

The TTFA also wishes to advise that Director of Football Muhammad Isa is now out of the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) but remains warded at the San Fernando General Hospital.

The family will like to specially thank the group of doctors and staff who have attended to Dad who have acted in a most efficient manner upon his arrival, during the emergency surgery and post-surgery,” Isa’s daughter Althea Reefer stated.
