Lawrence was born January 15, 1898 in Shawnee, Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma to David Pence Barto and Henrietta "Etta" Mae Williams Barto. In addition to working at Rohr he also served in the Army. He was married to Mirrel L. Davis Barto (b. 2/28/1906 in Missouri, d. 1973 California). Lawrence and Mirrel had one daughter, Etta M. (b. about 1925 in Arizona), and two sons, Lawrence Lee Barto (b. 1928 in Oklahoma, d. 2/15/2000 in Riverside, California), and James Barto (b. about 1935 in California). When the Census was taken in 1940 the family was living in Perris (Riverside County, California).
In 1957, during his employment in the Trim and Drill department at Rohr Riverside, he suffered a slight heart attack and was hospitalized (The AeROHRcrafter, May 1957, p. 37).
He passed away August 9, 1969. He is buried at Evergreen Memorial Historic Cemetary in Riverside, California with his wife Mirrel.
