Born in France, Lawrence received his education from private teachers, and every winter he went to ski at Davos, Switzerland. In 1948, he enrolled to Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, and graduated in 1951. That year, he married fellow American alpine ski racer Andrea Mead; they both competed at the 1952 Olympics, where she won two gold medals, in the giant slalom and slalom.

Lawrence then managed the Pico Peak ski area in Vermont, which was owned by his mother-in-law. In 1954, the couple moved to Parshall, Colorado, where he coached alpine skiing until 1957. Between 1952 and 1956, Andrea gave birth to a girl and two boys, with two girls born some time later. From 1957 to 1960, Lawrence worked for his father's company in Switzerland, and in 1960–1964 was an architectural designer in Aspen, Colorado; he also prepared the U.S. women's alpine team for the 1960 Winter Olympics at Squaw Valley, California.

After fourteen years of marriage, the couple divorced in 1965 and all five children remained with Andrea. Lawrence remarried and settled in Mexico in 1968.
