Laurie began his career as an auto mechanic, which he did for more than 25 years. He completed his career in 1994 with the Department of Transportation of the Province of New Brunswick as a vehicle inspector. When he retired, his passion for violins was transformed and he learned how to make them. This hobby allowed him to tweak his technique and build quality violins. Many in the region were able to take advantage of his talents as a violinist. He enjoyed beautiful evenings of music well surrounded. He left a legacy of his passion for music to his children and grandchildren.
