He leaves behind his father, James "Jim" Lawson, Sr. (Michele) and mother Sandra Lawson (Larry Farrand); sisters April DeVeau (Joshua) and Toni Girton (Derrick); daughters Jilly McGowen and Lyla Lawson; nieces; nephew; aunts, uncles and cousins.

He was preceded in death by grandparents Henry Sr (Ruth) Lawson and Robert Davis and Wilma Young; uncles Henry Lawson Jr and Paul Davis; and aunt Carol Davis.

Even though he suffered a long battle with diabetes, he always found joy in the simplest pleasures, took every opportunity to crack a  joke and did whatever he could to make people happy.

"Jim Junior" was a highly-skilled CNC Machinist who started his life-long career at JWS Machine and ended at United Machine & Design Inc. when the ravages of his diabetes prevented him from working any longer.

"Jimmy" cherished walks to the park with his daughters and sharing his appreciation of classic rock with them. He treasured time with all of his family and had a lot of fun hanging out with friends - golfing and working on vehicles. He liked to collect baseball caps and knives. It didn't take much to make him happy. Greiner Funeral Home were entrusted with arrangements. Online condolences may be made at www.greinerfuneralhome.com
