William Lawson Obituary
William (Bill) Lawson
Bill was born November 22,1933 and went to be with the rest of the Angels on September 1, 2014 at the age of 80. Bill was born in Williamson, WV, where he met his beautiful wife, the love of his life, Ruth, with whom he shared 58 years of marriage. They moved to CA in 1961, where he worked as a Programmer for Rockwell International. CA is where they raised their family, having a son, Kenny (Jan) Lawson and daughter, Barbara (Lee) Jabbora. For many years Bill loved coaching basketball, baseball, and football at Scott Park, where he was also the President of the Association; he had so many great memories during those years. In 1993, Bill and Ruth moved to Oklahoma where they made many friends, and Bill enjoyed many days and hours either reading on the golf course, working on the farm, or in his wood shop building many beautiful pieces of furniture, that is when he wasn't stealing kisses from his wife. He also enjoyed performing in town plays to benefit the Red Cross. Bill will be missed dearly by his wife (the love of his life), his son and daughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law and his grandchildren, Janice Lawson, Kendra Lawson, Brittney Lawson, Lindsey Jabbora and Kevin Jabbora, and also his great grandson, Jrue Young. Visitation will be held on Sunday, 3 - 7 p.m. at McNerney's Mortuary. A Funeral Service will be offered on Monday, September 8, 2014, 11:00 a.m. at McNerney's Mortuary Chapel.
