Lawrence was born May 11, 1930 in Rose Creek, Minnesota to Ernest and Lillian (Hanson) Enright. He attended country school and graduated from Austin High School in 1948. He enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1951 where he served as Corporal during the Korean War. Lawrence married Mary Ann Huemann on September 25, 1956 at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Johnsburg, MN.

Lawrence and Mary Ann lived on the Enright family farm where they raised their two children. Lawrence farmed with his brother, James, and they raised hogs, dairy farmed, and grew corn, soybeans, oats, and hay. He especially enjoyed raising deer for 20 years. The farm remained in the Enright family from 1888 until the summer of 2014 when Lawrence and Mary Ann sold it due to Mary Ann’s declining health.
