Lawrence E. Salyers

MANSFIELD: Lawrence E. Salyers, 73, of Mansfield, died Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at Liberty Nursing Center. Born April 8, 1940 in Mansfield, he was the son of John Issac and Idamae Ellen (Snyder) Salyers. Lawrence worked for the Village of Lucas for 22 years and also loved being a member of the Lucas Volunteer Fire Department for 15 years. He was a member of Lucas Four Square Church and Moose Lodge #341. Lawrence was a jack of all trades, master of none, and would always lend a helping hand to anyone in need. He liked making model cars, working on any old car he could get his hands on, and caring for his horse, Billy, and cat, Thomas. He adored his grandchildren and his great grandchildren, and if there was ever a baby around, he was holding and loving on them.

He is survived by his daughters, Pamela (James) Morris, Laurel (Will) Hicks, Margie (Larry) Shaffer, and Mary Ellen and Angie Salyers; son, Stephen Salyers; seven grandchildren; 17 great grandchildren; sisters, Carolyn Stover and Bertha French; sisters-in-law, Diane Reiter and Sue (Leland) Porch; brothers-in-law, Jay Reed and Charlie Adkins; several nieces and nephews; and his cat, Thomas. Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Kay E. (Reiter) Salyers who he married March 20, 1976; brother, Roger Salyers; and sisters, Judy Perry, Phyllis Adkins, and Francis Reed.

Friends may call Friday, December 6, 2013 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at the Diamond St. Home of Wappner Funeral Directors, 98 S. Diamond St., Mansfield. A spring burial will be held in Mansfield Memorial Park. Memorial contributions may be made in care of the family.
