Lawber Sr., Carl Leroy - Pittsfield  
Carl Leroy Lawber Sr., 96, of Pittsfield, died Sunday (Dec. 7, 2014) at Eastside Health and Rehabilitation Center in Pittsfield. He was born Sept. 4, 1918, in Pleasant Hill. He was the son of the late Joseph Albert and Margaret Jane Charters Lawber. He married Martha Jane Butler Aug. 31, 1963, in Golden, and she preceded him in death. Throughout his life Carl worked in farming and drove a truck. He appreciated farming because it allowed him to stay at home with his family. Mr. Lawber also loved to travel and share memories from his past. A favorite memory to share was from his time cooking for the cattle herders in Arizona and Texas on the open range. He would ride in the wagon with the cooking utensils and all of the cowboys referred to him as "Cookie." In addition to traveling, Carl loved being at home and he loved working on cars, both of which he was able to do for many years. Surviving are five children, sons Garry (Ida) of Barry, Kenneth of Dallas, Texas, and Carl (Cindy) Lawber Jr., of Pleasant Hill, and daughters, Margo (Merlyn) Winchell of Pleasant Hill and Sandy Ragan of Los Angeles. Mr. Lawber is also survived by 17 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren as well as many nieces and nephews.
