Lawrence Franklin Pettet Jr, 62, of Indianapolis, passed away on April 19, 2022.

Jr was born in Indianapolis, IN on June 14, 1959 to Lawrence Sr and Mae (Hall) Pettet.  He worked in manufacturing for many years before his health took a turn. Jr was a collector of old things.  Bruce Lee movies were his favorite, and he was a hometown sports supporter, following both the Colts and the Pacers.  Jr had a big heart and everyone loved him. He was the type of person to give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.  That's not to say he wasn't stubborn and opinionated, and there was no changing his mind once it was set. 

Jr was very family orientated.  He loved spending time with his son and his grandchildren.  He was always doting on them, be it buying them toys or taking them to the movies or just spending time with them.  They meant the world to him.  Jr was also a Man of Faith, he read his Bible every day.  He was taken too soon, but he is now at peace, at home in Heaven.

Jr is survived by his son Justin (Samantha Purvis) Pettet; grandchildren Chasity, Shelby, Traca, Trinity, Travis, and Destiny; siblings McKinnley Hall, Cathy FIsher, Terry Pettet, Pamela Kay Klepinger, and Carrol Pettet; and many nieces, nephews, and friends.

Jr is preceded in passing by his parents Lawrence Sr and Mae Pettet; and his brother Albis "Skipper".

A Memorial will be scheduled at a later date at the Familys convenience.
