Thomas Wayne Lawson

Thomas Wayne Lawson, age 59, of Hebron, peacefully passed away at his residence Saturday, November 5, 2011.

He was born on February 28, 1952, in Portsmouth, Ohio, to the late Eugene and Lucille (Grooms) Lawson. Thomas was with his loving wife, Debbie for 44 years. He loved playing golf-he treasured his Spring golf trips with his closest friends. A devoted father, Thomas enjoyed traveling and watching his son play baseball. He loved spending time with his family and making them home cooked meals. He served his country in the United States Navy and was a member of the American Legion Post 285 in Hebron.

He was employed by Walker Mfg. from 1978-1994 and has been employed by Lakewood Local School District since 1994. He was a little league baseball coach for several years. Tom was a man of great integrity and talent-there wasn’t anything he could not do. Tom was an avid fan of the OSU Buckeyes, Cleveland Browns and Cleveland Indians.

Thomas is survived by his wife, Debbie (Sex); son, Aaron (Stephanie); brothers, Danny P. (Annie), David E. (Barb), and Randy G. ( Laura); and many great friends, Marcia James, Gary Whitt, Jack and Joan Maybury, Arnie Ettenhoffer, Jay Gault, Rich Orr, Rick Anthony, Tommy Thompson, Doug and Marianne Amspaugh and Steve and Shelly McKinney. The family would like to give a special thanks to his Heartland Hospice caregivers, Jane and Gigi; his sister-in-law, Pam; and his niece, Susie and her family Doc and David.

Funeral Service was held on November 9, 2011, at the Hebron United Methodist Church with Pastor Brian Harkness officiating.

Memorial donations can be made to Heartland Hospice, 1507 W. Main Street, Newark, OH 43055.
